About Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers. They are provided with the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

In 2013, the Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things defined the IoT as the infrastructure of the information society.

The IoT allows objects to be sensed and/or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure.

When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems.

British entrepreneur Kevin Ashton coined the term in 1999 while working at Auto-ID Labs.
