IOT stands for the “Internet of Things”. The term refers to a data infrastructure in which everyday items such as vehicles, buildings, and personal accessories are connected to the internet. This has wide application in both the industrial and consumer spheres. Each “thing” that is connected has embedded computing and electronics components, allowing for them to gather and process data in a limited capacity. These devices then transmit that data to a gateway, which further routes it along. This allows for an incredible amount of analytics to be performed.
