INTERNET OF THINGS
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the phenomenon to establish an Internet connection between devices used in daily life. The main reason for the creation of this network is to help humans make decisions. Devices in this network are usually embedded with artificial intelligence, which uses data analytics to draw conclusions about a situation.
The core concept of the smart devices network was discussed back in 1982, when the modified Coca-Cola vending machine at Carnegie Mellon University became the first device to connect to the Internet, reporting its inventory and whether the newly loaded beverages were cold or not. Mark Weiser’s ubiquitous computing in 1991, “The Computer of the 21st Century”,
as well as educational sites such as Ubicomp and Perkham formed the contemporary vision of IoT. In 1994, Reza Raji described the concept in the IEEE spectrum as “moving small pocket data to a larger node to integrate and automate everything from home appliances to entire
industry”. Between 1993 and 1997, several companies proposed solutions such as Microsoft at Work or Novel’s Nest. By defining the Internet of Things
as “the point at which more things or objects are connected to the Internet than people”,Cisco Systems estimated that IoT was born between 2008 and 2009, with the content/population ratio growing from 0.08 in 2003 to 1.84 in 2010.
Career in IoT
Gaining knowledge in programing, embedded systems, networking and on big data will pave way to begin the career in IoT. There are many opportunities in IOT for younger generation.
Here are the career opportunities in IoT,
Network and Structure
Device and Hardware
Cell and UI development
Institutions Providing IOT education
There are various universities in the world to provide education on IOT.Here are the top 5 universities.
1)Beijing-Dublin International College – BE The Internet of Things (IoT) Engineering
2)CIFF Business School – Master in Internet of Things (IoT)
3)Malmo University – Computer Science: Internet of Things, Master’s
4)MIT Professional Education – Internet of Things: Roadmap to a Connected World
5)Queen Mary University of London – MSc, Internet of Things
Why we need IoT?
IoT wants to connect all possible means of communicating with each other on the Internet to
provide a safer, more comfortable life for humans. The Internet of Things (IoT) makes it possible to connect our world together. Nowadays we have internet infrastructure that can be used anytime. Embedded computer devices are exposed to Internet influence. Common events for embedded computer devices include MP3 players, MRI, traffic lights, microwave
ovens, washing machines and dishwashers, GPS and even cardiac tracking implants or biogas.IoT attempts to establish an advanced connection (with the help of the Internet) to this particular device or system or service. Everything is connected to collect and all the
information is fixed and interacts with each other through different protocol domains and applications.
USES Of IOT
Some of the major applications of IoT are
IoT Retail Shops
Smart Supply-chain Management
Day to day contribution of IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating much buzz while it goes about transforming our lives. IoT is everywhere, even though we don’t always see it or know that a device is part of the IoT. The IoT is turning physical objects into an ecosystem of information shared between devices that are wearable, portable, even implantable, making our lives technology and data rich. IoT business applications are numerous. Smart machines are changing when, where and how work
is done in virtually every industry; but, what does it mean for real life? IoT is an unprecedented network connecting machines, individuals, data and processes and is now filtering down to real-life, shaping how we go about our daily lives. Some real-world examples of IoT are wearable fitness and trackers (like Fitbits) and IoT healthcare applications, voice assistants (Siri and
Alexa), smart cars (Tesla), and smart appliances (iRobot). With IoTs rapid deployment coming into contact with multiple IoT devices every day will be unavoidable soon.
