IoT (Internet of Things) is about taking objects and connecting them to the internet.
With the emergence of wireless communication systems (i.e. Wifi, 3G, 4G, 5G, radio technologies), we can enable new connections that transfer information and data through code, sensors, and interfaces without the need for a human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
IoT is paving the way for developing more efficient distributed systems. From cities and airports to manufacturing plants and communication routes, IoT provides interactions–through sensors–with users. By transferring data and completing tasks, IoT can trace problems at the source and collect more precise data. The applications are endless:
Development of business models associated with these systems.
Design, construction, and deployment for different devices.
Design, construction, and operation of systems gathering and processing information and the logical development of action.
A challenge from the digital ecosystem
With the advantages of new devices, businesses and organizations have the power to:
Develop or improve new business models
Develop new processes and simplify existing ones thanks to new methods (e.g. automatic refueling)
Data acquisition in real-time with a reduced cost in business processes
