The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet. These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. In other words, when objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them.
It is estimated that by the year 2020 there will be about 50 billion objects interacting with the physical world by way of sensors be they temperature, movement, frequency, humidity, light, sound, pressure, chemical properties, and many others. These smart digital devices will need to communicate over the Internet infrastructure with the people, collect data using the sensors, and respond to instructions and situations.
