What is the “internet of things” & Why
Internet of things
Syllabification (Inter•net of things)
A proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have
network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data:
“If one thing can prevent the Internet of things from transforming the way
we live and work, it will be a breakdown in security.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people
are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a
network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer
Iot has always been a major area of interest for me and therefore, given the
opportunity, I would like to take this subject up for practical study.
FUTURE of the IoT?
Pretty soon, Every-Thing will have an IP address.
Thermostats (e.g., Nest)
Farm crops and animals
30B devices by 2020
Need for IPv6
In the near future, say the next 5 years, IoT will revolutionize
the world of connection management. The Internet & the
wireless technology will connect different sources of
information such as sensors, mobiles, cars etc. in an ever
tight manner. IoT will change the way information from such
sources are handled at present.
• Communication between servers or
• Server/Middleware Platforms
• Data Analytics Engines
• Apps (iOS, Android, Web)
• NFC (Near-Field Communication)
• Wibro/Mobile WiMax
• PLC (Power Line Communication)
• What else?
Smart Cows &
Given the internship opportunity, I intend or would like to work on the application of IoT in the field of Developing
Smart Energy Grids with the guiding from Mphasis Experts. Also, another field which attracts me is the application of
IoT and Wireless solutions in the Medical field.
Infrastructure monitoring (smart bridges).
Instant inventory control.
Amazon on wheels
taxi, bus, trucks, rental cars.
Scheduling of appliances
Example: As an alternative to selling jet engines, Rolls offers “power by
the hour” providing a fully serviced solution.
