Have you ever thought how does a paused elevator in a shopping mall start running automatically when someone stepped in?
Have you ever surprised how can we operate an AC machine by using our smart phone when not being at home?
Have you ever amazed how do home security cameras automatically capture any moving object and send to the user’s smart phone?
These all are the instances of Internet of Things or IoT.
In current century we all are accustomed with flavor of automation technology where we use some hard core machine to do a specific work automatically. With the help of this automated technology we are now able to do any work in very efficient manner side by side we are also able to complete our task very quickly. But to operate those machines, human interactions, which act as direction or step by step instruction on how this machine will work to give us accurate result, are required. IoT or Internet of Things is a new trending technology in the era of automation where ‘things’ can be communicate which each other over the internet without requiring human interaction.
What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
In the broadest sense, the term IoT means anything attached to the internet but it is necessary that they are able to ‘talk’ or ‘communicate’ with each other without human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. ‘Things’ can be anything like computing device, mechanical and digital machine, heart-rate monitor, electronic gadgets with sensors. These objects are being assigned with IP address and they can automatically receive and send data over a preset network without human interference.
Matthew Evans, the IoT Programme head at techUK said, “Simply, the Internet of Things is made up of devices – from simple sensors to smartphones and wearable’s – connected together.”
Now-a-days, the trend of operating any services efficiently and effectively is high. It is increasing the scope of applying IoT by almost all the organizations throughout the world. IoT touches every industry, including businesses within healthcare, finance, retail and manufacturing, as it helps to understand customers’ need, to deliver better customer service and to increase the value of business.
What are the examples of IoT:
IoT device also have significant impact in our daily life also, say for examples-
- Smart Home appliances, say for example- refrigerators, washing machine, coffee machine etc.
- Digital personal assistants, say for example – Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google Home etc.
- Home security system, say for example – smart locks, and smart doorbells, smart CCTV camera etc.
What are the Advantages of IoT?
- It has the ability to access required information from anywhere at any time on any communicating device;
- It is used to transfer data packets over a connected network which is also cost and time effective;
- It can automatically run the tasks, which helps to improve the quality of a business’s services; and
- It helps to reduce the need for human intervention.
According to the report published by Nasscom, The Internet of Things (IoT) market is expected to reach 9 billion dollars by 2020. More than 1.9 billion devices are expected to be connected in India by the end of 2020. Indian IoT market has huge potential and expected to grow across a many industries in manufacturing, automotive, transportation and logistics. So it can be concluded as that, B.Tech in computer science course with specialization in IoT, offered by Adamas University may widen the scope to make a better career position in this global as well as Indian scenario.
