What is the Internet of Things?

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) may sound complex, but it is a simple concept to understand. On a high level, IoT is the ability for things that contain embedded technologies to sense, communicate, interact, and collaborate with other things, thus creating a network of physical objects. In recent years this concept has gained enormous momentum and is now one of the hottest topics in the technology sector. As a result of this rapid growth rate, it is projected that there will be approximately 26 billion connected devices by 2020.

What is Sensor Technology?

Sensors can improve the world through diagnostics in medical applications; improved performance of energy sources like fuel cells and batteries and solar power; improved health and safety and security for people; sensors for exploring space and the known university; and improved environmental monitoring.

The seed technologies are now being developed for long-term vision that includes intelligent systems that are self-monitoring, self-correcting and repairing, and self-modifying or morphing not unlike sentient beings. The ability for a system to see (photonic technology), feel (physical measurements), smell (electronic noses), hear (ultrasonics), think/communicate (smart electronics and wireless), and move (sensors integrated with actuators), is progressing rapidly and suggests an exciting future for sensors.
