What is IoT?
The definition of IoT could be the grouping and interconnection of devices and objects through a network (either private or the Internet, the network of networks), where all of them could be visible and interact. Regarding the type of objects or devices, they could be anyone, from sensors and mechanical devices to everyday objects such as the refrigerator, footwear or clothing. Anything that can be imagined could be connected to the internet and interact without the need for human intervention, the objective is, therefore, a machine-to-machine interaction, or what is known as an M2M (machine to machine) interaction or M2M devices.
The applications are almost endless, but some examples will be described to give visibility of any of them, both in everyday life and in the business environment:
Assume the refrigerator in a house, where food is preserved that, in turn, has an expiration date. In this scenario, the refrigerator could be connected to the internet to notify the user through his mobile phone, for example, when food expires, if there is a temperature drop due to a breakdown, if any food is running out or simply the electricity consumption based on the number of times the refrigerator door is opened.
Another scenario could be that of home automation, where there are already numerous devices that connect to the Internet to facilitate the lives of human beings, see for example the voice-controlled devices that are asked to play a song from a repository in internet, or the devices and applications that allow to control all the parameters of the water of an aquarium, or even the alarm systems of the houses that connect with the power stations. Security systems that connect to the network to notify you when someone enters your home or those devices that allow you to turn on the heating from a mobile phone.
IoT in Industry
If you think about industrial applications, IoT is already used in many production plants where the devices and sensors connected to the network allow to analyze the data and generate alarms and messages that are sent to the different users to take the necessary actions or even initiate action protocols automatically, without human interaction, to correct or treat these alarms.
Another example of an application would be in the livestock sector where biometric monitoring and geolocation is a factor that helps farmers keep their animals always under control.
Terms closely related to IoT can be “Smart Cities” and “Smart Buildings” where IoT devices are used to improve traffic control, control of water supplies and heating in a building, control of public transport, etc.
This communication process is where IoT is evolving since one of the pitfalls to save is the type of protocol with which these devices communicate (that is, “the language” that they talk to each other). Currently, there are very new devices or sensors whose communication and internet connection is easy and direct, but there are also many other older non-standard devices whose communication and connection protocol is not trivial, that is where one of these pitfalls comes to save. Additionally, each manufacturer or “vendor” has its communication protocols that make not all devices compatible. One of the mechanisms that have been tried to establish is the creation of an open and standard protocol (proposed by IBM) called MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport).
On the other hand, if IoT devices are sought, various aspects such as low consumption and small size have to be considered, hence SoCs (SoC, System on Chip) are an important part of such devices. An SoC is an integrated circuit that contains all or much of the modules that a computer would have (SoCs can be found in mobile phones, for example). As examples of large manufacturers we have ARM and Intel, although they are not the only ones, there are more recent ones such as MediaTek, Qualcomm or Samsung.
IoT Boom in the USA
The United States has got some exceptional and unmatched developers when it comes to state of the art technologies thanks to the global companies here like Google and Microsoft. Since its inception, IoT has grown rapidly here while researchers are making sure that every glitch associated with this tech is eliminated. Many businesses have already opted for this sophisticated technology and are competing well in their vertical markets. In short, there is no other place like the USA on earth when it comes to innovative technologies and the advancements in this sector.
