“The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”
In the Internet of Things, all the things that are being connected to the internet can be put into three categories:
1. Things that collect information and then send it.
2. Things that receive information and then act on it.
3. Things that do both.
Collecting and Sending Information
This means sensors. Sensors could be production sensor, counting sensors, temperature sensors, motion sensors, moisture sensors, air quality sensors, light sensors. these sensors, can collect data and send it to a cloud, within a prescribed time, so that we can get more information about the soil.
Now, the famers will get the precise information of the soil, whether it is desert of water OR when it is the time required for watering. Else, the loss of crops will be at the fate of the farmer.
Similary any machine data can also be fetched to the cloud, and the intelligence can be put onto the cloud data.
IIOT – It is the application of IoT to the manufacturing industry, and it is revolutionizing industrial automation.
Our next couple of blog shall be based on the IOT requirements and thought-prcoess on the same.
