  3. 3. Smart Things, Sensors, the Net & more… IoT Overview What Roadmap Numbers Potential Market … Agenda
  4. 4. Many Objects that we use Every day Evolve Cheap and Powerful Processors allows Smart Usage of Software to Improve Capabilities Moore’s Law The number of transistors incorporated in a chip will approximately double every 24 months. Processing Power Low Power/Low Cost 32bits Chips are Replacing old 8bits Microcontrollers providing much more Processing Power and Connectivity Features Smart Things, Sensors, the Net & more…
  5. 5. Sensors Sensors can be used to Translate the Real World into Digital Information Computers can “feel” the Real World Sensors are getting Simpler to Integrate and Cheaper Smart Devices Smart Devices use Sensors to Translate the Environment in a Digital Format They can React to Events and Change the Environment Smart Things, Sensors, the Net & more…
  6. 6. Internet of Things (IoT) The term was created by Kevin Ashton in 1999 to describe a technology for the unique identification of objects within a "network“. IoT is seen as a possible evolution of the use of the Network. IoT is to ensure that the electronic world draw a map of the real world, giving an electronic identity to things and places in the physical environment. IoT : What?
  7. 7. Over time, the term takes on ever wider meanings, which gradually will "merge" with the applications of the technology: Wireless Sensor Networks Machine to Machine (M2M) Physical computing Connected Environments Physical Internet …more and more! IoT : What?
  8. 8. IoT : Roadmap RFID tags for facilitating routing, inventorying and loss prevention Surveillance, security, healthcare, transport, food safety, document management Locating people and everyday objects Teleoperation and telepresence: ability to monitor and control distant objects Livellotecnologico 2000 2010 2020 Supply-chain Helpers Vertical-Market Applications Ubiquitous Positioning Physical-World-Web
  9. 9. 1.5 bn PCs connected, < 1 bn phones, 50 bn by 2020 (Ericsson), seven devices for every human being! IoT : Numbers 16 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2015 Today more Devices than Human Beings are Connected to the Internet
