All Information about IOT :

History of Internet of Things :

 The core concept of smart device networks dates back to 1982.  Mark Weiser’s 1991 paper, “The Computer of the 21st Century”, as well as academic venues such as UbiComp and PerCom, presented the model of the Internet of Things.

 The concept of the “Internet of Things”, and the term itself, first appeared in a speech by Peter T. Lewis at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 15th Annual Legislative Weekend in Washington, DC, in September 1985.  The term “Internet of Things” was independently coined by Kevin Ashton of Procter & Gamble.  In 1999, radio-frequency identification (RFID) was considered essential to the Internet of Things, which would allow computers to manage all personal belongings.

Status of Internet of Things in India :

 The Central Government released the draft policy on Internet of Things in October 2014.  It was released with some modifications in April 2015 in conjunction with the Digital India Smart India initiative.  Under this policy, there is a plan to create an Internet of Things industry worth US $ 15 billion by 2020.  The Government of Andhra Pradesh approved India’s first Internet of Things Policy 2016 with the aim of transforming Andhra Pradesh into a major IT hub by 2020.  In the private sector, in August 2015, Reliance Communications Limited attempted to enter Internet of Things services in India by entering into a settlement with United States-based Jasper Technologies.

How does the Internet of Things work?

 The Internet of Things process starts with devices like smartphones, smartwatches, electronic appliances like TV, washing machines etc. which help you communicate with the Internet of Things platform-

 1. Sensor/Device

 Sensors or devices are a major component that help you collect live data from the surrounding environment.  This could be a simple temperature monitoring sensor, or it could be in the form of a video feed.  A device may contain different types of sensors that perform multiple functions besides sensing.  Example, mobile phone is a device which has many sensors like GPS, camera.

 2. Connectivity :

 All the collected data is sent to the cloud infrastructure.  The center should be connected to the cloud using various means of communication.  These communication mediums include mobile or satellite network, Bluetooth, WiFi, WAN etc.

3. Data Processing :

 Once that data is collected, and it reaches the cloud, the software performs processing on the collected data.  This process can only check the temperature and read it on appliances like AC or heater.

4. User Interface :

 The information must be available to the end user in some way by digging an alarm on their phone or by sending them an email or notification.  Users may sometimes need an interface that proactively checks their 101 system.
