The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined in different
ways, and it encompasses many aspects of life
from connected homes and cities to connected cars
and roads to devices that track an individual’s
behavior and use the data collected for “push”
The IoT creates an intelligent, invisible network
fabric that can be sensed, controlled and
programmed. IoT-enabled products employ
embedded technology that allows them to
communicate, directly or indirectly, with each other
or the Internet.

Automatic traffic management.

In 2010, the number of everyday physical objects
and devices connected to the Internet was around
12.5 billion. Cisco forecasts that this figure is
expected to double to 25 billion in 2015 as the
number of more smart devices per person
increases, and to a further 50 billion by 2020.
Streams of data emerging in networking, storage, analytics,
and visualization companies.
Smart desk tracks health data and encourages activity(Stir
Smart lock sends picture alerts to cellphone(Goji Smart
Talking toys allow parents to send voicemails to
iBeacon technology (which uses Bluetooth low
energy) allows any new iPhone to detect its
position in space to the nearest centimeter,
meaning that shopkeepers can track where and
how consumers purchase products and send them
suggestions, recommendations, and discounts.
In upcoming years, the streams of data generated
from various sources can plays a vital role in
evolution of IoT.
Security: With the amount of data being sent
within the IoT, security is a must. Built-in hardware
security and use of existing connectivity security
protocols is essential to secure the IoT.
Complexity: Manufacturers are looking to add
connectivity to devices and equipment that has
never been connected before to become part of the
Power management: More things within the IoT
will be battery powered or use energy harvesting
to be more portable and self-sustaining. Line-
powered equipment will need to be more energy
For example: The hotel where we have a
reservation knows we are coming and the
approximate time of our arrival because we have
allowed Apple and Google to track my location
It also knows that we are hot and sweaty from our
trip because of the temperature and moisture
sensors that are part of our smartwatch.
As like, this IoT reduces the human work
If given an internship in Internet of things, I would
intend to work on the units of Secured Iot.
