The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a network of interconnected physical devices, vehicles, appliances, and other objects embedded with sensors, software, and connectivity capabilities. These devices can collect and exchange data with each other, enabling them to communicate and interact seamlessly. IoT is driven by the idea of making everyday objects "smart" by connecting them to the internet and enabling them to gather and share data. The power of IoT lies in its ability to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds, enabling new levels of automation, efficiency, and convenience. By leveraging IoT, businesses and individuals can monitor and control devices remotely, optimize resource usage, and gain valuable insights from the vast amount of data generated. IoT has the potential to transform various industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, agriculture, and smart cities.
