What is the Internet of Things?
Up until recently, most of the information in “the cloud” was human-consumable; the information it contained has been accessed by, and been about, people.
The goal of the IoT is to create a network of “things” — electronic devices, sensors, and even people themselves — that not only has access to this wealth of information, but is also capable of communicating with it and each other.
Supporters of this movement often cite many benefits, a few of which include improved automation in nearly every industrial field, improved economy, lower pollution, and so on. In other words, the main goal is an improved quality of life for all.
