What is the Internet of Things?

The IoT is now a reality due to the convergence of several technologies

A “thing” is any object with embedded electronics that can transfer data over a network — without any human interaction.

Wearable devices, environmental sensors, machinery in factories, components in a vehicle or devices in homes and buildings can all be connected to deliver insights and drive transformation.

So imagine if you had smart devices in your home, your car, your workplace ─ or even on yourself.

The Internet of Things can make life easier and reinvent the way we interact with the physical world.
