Why Was Iot Invented? (#1 ANSWER!)

“Today computers, and, therefore, the Internet, are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information 🙌 Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes of data available on the Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a barcode 😎 The problem is, people have limited time, attention, and accuracy 😉 They aren’t good at recording data in real life. Computers that could know everything about anything, without our help, would allow us to keep track of everything and reduce costs, waste, and loss. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing, or recalling and whether they were fresh, or past their best.” [1]
Not so long ago, the idea of connecting everything with everything may have sounded like some far-fetched futuristic idea – a bit of fun for science fiction Fans, but it is not something that we will likely ever experience. It started to happen. It was a global phenomenon that the’s internet taking off. Suddenly, everyone had a PC and we were all “surfing the web” at every opportunity. The internet was quickly adopted by businesses all over the world, who began to send emails. The demand for portable devices grew next. Laptops became as common as pocket calculators, with “internet cafes” and “Wi-Fi hotspots” soon entering mainstream public lexicon. It wasn’t enough. We wanted the internet in the palm of our hand at all times – and smartphones, 3G and 4G mobile networks put it there. Now, we’re looking at our things. Your home appliances, cars and security systems. Machines, factories and offices. Our cities, infrastructure. We want all of our things connected to all of our things – and, if your things aren’t already connected, they soon will be, especially as the fifth generation of mobile broadband technology (5G) rears its head above the horizon. And so here we are – welcome to the Internet of Things (IoT). This page was last edited on September 19, 2018 by Yashika barbosa (Al Hudaydah in Yemen). [2]

Internet of Things or IoT refers the millions of physical devices that have been connected to the internet. They all collect and share data. It’s now possible to make any device, small or large, part of the IoT, thanks to super-cheap computers and ubiquitous wireless networks. By connecting all these devices and attaching sensors, you can give digital intelligence to objects that otherwise would not be able to do so. They are able to transmit real-time information without the involvement of a human. The Internet of Things makes the physical world more intelligent and responsive by combining the digital and physical realms. We are grateful to Arlington Dewitt (India, Meerut) for sharing their insights. [3]
Verdict.co.uk It also describes the four Carnegie Mellon University graduate-students who, fed up of going to Cola-Cola machines and finding them empty, modified the machines to keep track of their contents. An electronic board connected to the machines lights was installed. This was connected to the university’s computer science department main computer, which was connected to an early form of the internet, ARPANET. ARPANET connected computers could then monitor and control the machine to allow the users to more efficiently plan their trip to the vending machine. [4]
