Anuj Sharma: The Tech Behind Internet of Things

Source: „IoT is expected to be the next big revolution after the World Wide Web. It aims to create a seamless network of billions of wirelessly identifiable devices that can communicate over the Internet. These devices could be anything, right from things that we encounter in our daily lives, like different types of machines and appliances, to the buildings that we live in, the cars we travel in and so on.

All these things can become effective members in business, information and social processes where they can connect and communicate
