Internet of Things (IoT) – Scenarios on Today and Tomorrow
Keywords:Internet of Things; wireless networks; RFID; cloud computing; IoT Technology
This paper presents the current trends in IoT research propelled by applications and the need for
convergence in several interdisciplinary technologies and Cloud centric vision for worldwide implementation of
Internet of Things. The terms ‘Internet of Things’ and ‘IoT’ refers broadly to the extension of network
connectivity and computing capability to objects, devices sensors, and items not ordinarily considered to be
computers. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or things embedded with electronics,
software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The
Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure. The
IoT is enabled by the latest developments in RFID, smart sensors, communication technologies, and Internet
protocols. These smart objects require minimal human intervention to generate, exchange, and consume data.
They often feature connectivity to remote data collection, analysis and management capabilities.
