A Ne Mega-Trend in Technology:
Sensors are gradually becoming a part of modern world. Thanks to internet penetration and upsurge in the usage of smart phones; remotely monitoring and managing things by combining sensors and networked intelligence has become a reality. This new mega-trend in technology – known as Internet of Things (IoT) collects and manages massive data from the network of devices and sensors, processes this data and finally shares it with other connected devices. It not only facilitates capture of meaningful data but also gives access to real-time information. Its application is being seen not only on industrial fronts where it helps to improve productivity and reduces costs but also in personal lives – be it in the form of a reminder gadget to take your daily dose of medicine or tracking your activity levels throughout the day using your smartphone’s range of sensors or intelligent cars that drive and park themselves.
