THE INTERNET OF THINGS

In the mid 2000’s, Kevin Ashton who
then worked for MIT Auto ID lab coined the basis for what might turn into the Internet
of Things. He was one of the pioneers who considered this idea as he researched
ways that P company could improve its business growth by connecting RFID
data to the Web.

The idea was basic however very powerful. If every item in
day by day life were outfitted with identifiers and remote network, these items
or devices could speak with each other and be overseen by personal computers(PCs).
In a 1999 article Ashton expressed: “On the off chance that if we had PCs
that knew everything there was to think about things—utilizing information they
accumulated with no assistance from us – we would have the capacity to track
and check everything, and significantly decrease waste and cost. We would know
when things required replenishing, repairing or reviewing, and whether they
were in top operational condition or past their best. So we needed to enable
PCs with their own methods for gathering data, so they can see, hear and notice
the world for themselves, as a result we utilized firstly Radio frequency
identification (RFID) which is a wireless communication technology that lets
computers read the identity of inexpensive electronic tags from a distance
without requiring a battery in the tags and secondly sensor technology to enable
computers to watch, distinguish and  identify and comprehend the world without the
limitations of information that have to be inputted by humans.
