You must have read “Internet of Things” on the Internet, but if you do not know about it yet, today I am going to give you complete information about it.
Internet of things is a very advanced technology which we are going to use in our daily life very soon.
If I ask you, who brings vegetables in your house? You will answer that I or my household members bring. How would you like to know that in future your fridge will automatically place an online order for the vegetable by checking the availability of the vegetable itself, or is this a very amazing technique.
Internet of Things is a technology with the help of which all our daily essential tasks will become automatic. And we will not have to worry much about our daily work.
What is Internet of Things (IoT)?
The full form of IoT is Internet of Things (IoT). This is a concept in which all the necessary devices of the world will be connected to the internet.
Then all the appliances in your house will be connected to each other as well as through the net you can talk to each other and if needed, contact each other and also give directions to each other.
These include many devices such as: – cell phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, all wearable devices and everything you can think of.
Example of “Internet of Things”
To understand this concept better, let us use an example so that you can understand it in a better way.
Suppose you are sleeping deeply, your heartbeat has suddenly increased while sleeping, so the cencors in your hands find something unusual in your heartrate, so these instruments start vibrating loudly to wake you up. Which breaks your sleep.
As soon as you open the screen of your mobile, you see a message on it that says, “Your blood pressure is high” and it also advises you to take two aspirin. Not only this but with this, he records all your signals and sends them to your doctor.
The team of doctors in the hospital is evaluating your data and after their observation they feel that you should come to the hospital immediately and for this they electronically send an emergency medical team to your house, who have all your health condition data are present.
On reaching home of the medical team, you get a message about their arrival by phone. He immediately takes you to the hospital for medical treatment.
The doctor comes to you in the morning and gives you the good news that “Now your health is better than before and now you don’t have to worry. You had a severe heart attack but due to treatment in time, a big problem has been prevented. ”
Now you must have understood how the Internet of Things can make our life better.
Who named the Internet of Things?
In 1999, a scientist named Kevin Ashton first named the concept ‘Internet of Things’. Then he used to work in P&G.
Which devices can become part of IoT?
Any device that has a switch of on and off can become part of the IoT.
Devices that you can connect to the internet:
- Connected Wearable – Smartwatches, Smart glasses, fitness bands etc.
- Connected Homes – इसमें ऐसे उपकरण शामिल है जिन्हें की हम घर पर इस्तमाल करते हैं.
- Connected Cars – vehicles जो की internet के साथ connect हो सकें.
- Connected Cities – smart meters जो की आसानी से ये analyse कर सकते हैं water, gas, electricity के usage को
What is the need of Internet of Things?
Here I am going to tell you about its usefulness.
- Provides the best possible feedback for your physical and mental health.
- Provides the best possible resource allocation in real-time monitoring.
- Provides the best possible decision making in mobility patterns.
- With this, it provides the best possible connection to local providers who have global potential.
What are the main Opportunities and Benefits of IoT?
IoT gives us opportunities to do our work more effectively which saves us time as well as money, while our work gets done easily.
Internet of Things also solves our day-to-day problems such as finding parking for our car in a busy area, and finding out if we need more milk with fridge’s webcam.
With this IoT also provides us many benefits industrially.
What are the main Threats and Challenges of IoT?
All the devices which are connected to the internet in the future can be easily hacked, since IoT is also based on the internet, so it can also be hacked. You must have seen many such scenes in movies where hackers hack their systems and do their work.
Technology is progressing at a very fast pace, so if it is not controlled in time, it can bring great difficulties for us in future.
If all the things will be linked to online then there are many chances of having many privacy issues. In the future, intelligence services can use this IoT for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and recruitment targeting and to gain access over networks.
Through Internet of things (IoT) all the necessary tools can connect with each other but also talk among themselves and do many of our tasks. IoT is a very large network in which devices can be connected with devices, apart from that it will be easy to connect devices with people and also with people, as all are connected with each other in the same network in future. Time may also come when we may have to completely depend on IoT.
