Technology is evolving day bay day; so it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and innovations that are shaping the future.
One of the top tech trends of 2023 and near future is IoT(Internet Of Things). It is not a new thing in technical world as it dates back to the 1980s.
What Is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
According to Wikipedia:
The Internet of things describes devices with sensors, processing ability, software and other technologies that connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet or other communications networks. The Internet of things encompasses electronics, communication and computer science engineering.
Simply means, a network of physical devices, vehicles, appliances and other physical objects that are embedded with sensors, software and network connectivity that allows them to collect and share data. They are referred as “smart objects” — can range from simple wearables like smartwatches.
IoTs made our life much more easy. With smart home devices like Amazon Alexa-powered Echo, smart refrigerators that can create grocery lists for you, we have witnessed just a glimpse of what IoT has in store for us.
In this blog, we’ll explore the astonishing IoT statistics will give you all the necessary information this industry and how it help in our daily lives.
