Wondering how Internet of Things has become a wonderful part of technology? The Internet of things, also known as IOT is the internetworking of physical devices which is embedded with sensors, soft ware’s, actuators and so on. These embedded elements help the objects to collect and exchange data. Internet of Things has become a hot topic in today’s world as it opens door to endless opportunities and many challenges.

In the year 2013, GSI, the Global Standards Initiative defined IOT as the infrastructure of the information society, which means, IOT devices allows objects to be controlled remotely across the existing network infrastructure.


With the introduction of IOT, technologies gave birth to smart grids, smart homes, smart cities and intelligent transportation. Experts estimates IoT would spread in more than 50 billion objects by 2020.  This giant network of connection is between people to people, things to people and things to things.

The massive amount of data that the devices produce is an issue for the companies as they need to figure out a way to for quick aggregation and efficient storage of data.

IoT has now become one of the best platforms of current Smart City and Smart Energy Management Systems. It can be applied to transportation networks to help us reduce waste and generate energy. This can help people to improve their lives and take new challenges in their day today life. So let’s get prepared to experience the potential impact of IoT in our upcoming lives.
