What is IoT?
“IoT” describes the revolution in bringing internet connectivity to previously isolated devices, achieving ‘connected devices‘. Early examples include smart thermostats enabling the user to control their central heating remotely, though in the industrial sector this has signalled the arrival of Industry 4.0, heralding a new era in M2M smart manufacturing.
Key issues for IoT:
- – Low power – often portable/wearable so battery powered
- – Reliability to enable mission critical applications
- – Open standards based platforms
- – Reduced development timescales
