With IoT devices like webcams, wearable tech-like smart watches, car sensors, electronic appliances like TV, refrigerator, Air conditioning machine, Washing machine etc., and even rudimentary robots have started communicating with human leveraging internet. What the Internet of Things (IoT) offers is a way to control the real physical world—from the web using sensors , actuators, microprocessor/ micro controller, different networkings (SIM,BLE, wifi, xbee, Bluetooth ), connection bus etc.
All these physical hardware; we call now things. And this technology tells us how to program these things
It is evident that IoT has the potential to disrupt industry structure and transform businesses, there are many uses cases available where IoT can play important role. I have started looking into this area since last year.I have created a small lab in my home, and I have procured many basic sensors and actuators and have programmed them with MCUs like Rpi and Arduino.
