Applications of internet of things
Author(s): Satyajeet S Mandale, Sairaj S Suryavanshi
Abstract: The Internet of things is a system presently used by maximum applications in various sectors of business government and many other applications. The IoT is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and connectivity which enables these things to connect and exchange data. The term “Thing” in “Internet of Things” is used quite broadly. For example, a thing within the IoT could be a person with a heart monitor implant, a pet with a biochip transponder, a vehicle that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that an IP address can be assigned to, thus gaining the ability to transfer data over a network. As a result, it is becoming increasingly easy to create opportunities to directly integrate the physical world into computer-based systems which results in improvements, efficiency, economic benefits and reduced human exertion.
