What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

The internet of things, or IoT, is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Increasingly, organizations in a variety of industries are using IoT to operate more efficiently, better understand customers to deliver enhanced customer service, improve decision-making and increase the value of the business.

How IoT works?

  • An IoT ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices that use embedded systems, such as processors, sensors and communication hardware, to collect, send and act on data they acquire from their environments.

  • IoT devices share the sensor data they collect by connecting to an IoT gateway or other edge device where data is either sent to the cloud to be analyzed or analyzed locally. Sometimes, these devices communicate with other related devices and act on the information they get from one another.

  • The devices do most of the work without human intervention, although people can interact with the devices. For instance, to set them up, give them instructions or access the data. The connectivity, network, and communication protocols used with these web-enabled devices are highly dependent on the specific IOT applications deployed.

Benefits of Internet Of Things (IoT)

  • IoT encourages companies to rethink the ways they approach their businesses and gives them the tools to improve their business strategies. One of the most important advantages is the predictive maintenance of industrial internet businesses. It allows status data to be obtained from machines and proactive maintenance to be carried out on systems. The main objective of predictive maintenance is to provide the most precise advance maintenance planning and to avoid unexpected breakdowns.

  • Another major advantage is the improved field service. IOT technologies enable service workers to resolve issues ahead of time by helping field service technicians identify potential problems with customer equipment before they become major problems.

  • Asset tracking is another IoT advantage. Suppliers, manufacturers and customers can use asset management systems to monitor the position and status of products throughout the supply chain. The system sends immediate alerts if the goods are damaged or at risk of damage, giving the chance to take preventive or immediate action to rectify the situation.

  • IoT provides greater customer satisfaction. When products and objects are connected to the internet, the manufacturer can gather and analyze data on how customers use their products. It enables manufacturers and product designers to adapt future IoT devices and create more customer-centric product roadmaps.

  • IoT also makes a positive contribution to facility management. Because of their sensitivity to certain conditions within the factory, the sensors can monitor vibrations, temperatures and other factors that can lead to sub-optimal operating conditions.

Internet of Things and Big Data

Today, the Internet of Things ranges from small appliances to smart cities. The data generated there appear as Big Data. The big data created by interpreting the data used in the Internet of Things and analyzing different data is very valuable.

Big Data is formed as a result of the collection and accumulation of all digital data in our lives. The data here are analyzed by people or artificial intelligence and become useful for many things in our daily life.
