Connecting ThingsAn ever increasing number of everyday machines and objects are now embedded with sensors or actuators and have the ability to communicate over the Internet. Collectively they make up the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT draws together various technologies including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) service platforms and Wireless Sensor Networks. Potential applications and services include smart devices, smart cities, smart grids, the connected car, eHealth, home automation and energy management, public safety and remote industrial process control.
