The Internet of Things

The ‘Internet of Things’ describes the trend for environments, building, vehicles, clothing, portable devices and other objects to have more and more information associated to them. Electronic devices and appliances may have the ability to communicate, sense and optimise their energy efficiency and use using wireless sensors 

A widespread Internet of Things could transform how we live in cites, how we travel, how we live sustainably and how our health services are operated. It is estimated that by 2020, 50 billion objects will be connected with a potential market for services in the hundreds of billions of pounds.

The Internet of Things revoluptin is already happening. A number of terms are already in used, such as Smart Cities, Connected Cars, V2G [Vehicle to Grid], Connected World, Machine to Machine, etc. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is often seen as a prerequisite for the Internet of Things. If all objects of daily life were equipped with radio tags, they could be identified and inventoried by computers. However, unique identification of things may be achieved through other means such as barcodes or 2D-codes as well.√جª¬ø
