The Internet of Things
Transcript of The Internet of Things
What is the
Internet of Things (IoT)?
The concept of connecting everyday objects to the Internet through embedding sensors and actuators, and giving them the ability to send and receive data.
The IoT, as
explained by Intel
What do industry thought leaders expect from the IoT?
"By the end of 2015, there will be almost
‘things’ connected to the Internet. And by the end of 2020 that number will rise to
. That’s more than three things connected to the Internet for
each person on the planet
Xerox designed the Networked Coke Machine. It was the
first practice of the Internet of things.
professor Kevin Ash-ton (MIT) first came up with the concept.
MIT established Auto-ID, putting forward that all the things
could connect through the internet. At that time, the main form of the
IoT was RFID.
ITU (International Telecommunication Union) cited the
concept of the IoT in the WSIS (World Summit on Information Society).
In this period, the range of the IoT began to expand.
IBM Chief Executive Samuel Palmisano put forward the
concept of "smarter planet" for the first time at the ’round-table
reference’ with Barack Obama. Also in this year, the U.S.
considered the IoT as one of the key elements to promote the

Fourth Industrial Revolution
, following the steam engine, the conveyor belt, and the first phase of IT and automation technology."
- German Industry Leaders, as reported by McKinsey&Company
Six distinct types of applications are emerging in two broad categories: Information/Analysis and Automation/Control.
Enhanced situational awareness
Sensor-driven decision analytics
Optimized resource consumption
Complex autonomous systems
A more convenient life
Increase in safety at home and outside of the home
Real-time information/faster information
More advanced/faster health care response
More accurate, flexible, efficient control of processes
Track and analysis the product
Decreasing overall cost
Decreasing risk of human error
Reducing risk for workers
Decreasing environmental impact/energy usage
Lack of Technical Standards
Routers and modems, a primary source of connectivity for the IoT at home, are more powerful than ever.
Specific concerns for routers and modems:
An August 2014 study from Hewlett-Packard found that
of all IoT devices are vulnerable to being hacked or compromised.
A January 2014 global IoT
cyber-attack, hackers compromised more than
everyday consumer smart devices and used the devices to launch more than
malicious email communications.
Some of these IoT devices include smart TVs, wireless speaker systems, network routers, and even refrigerators.
Our lives are observed
24 hours a day
, even if you don’t notice it.
Every single thing joined into the IoT needs to have both a unique identity and the ability to synchronize with all other objects. It’s hard for machines to analyze and deal with a global internet system that includes such a large number of elements.
Also, it’s difficult to choose appropriate team to create and control it.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) no longer the only industry standard
Multiple ways to connect objects
Must be streamlined
All devices from all manufacturers must be able to communicate with one another.
Jacob Morgan, contributing writer for Forbes, says:
“The relationship will be between
people-things, and things-things.”
By far, security risk is the biggest concern with the IoT.
They are used between users and the Internet, so turning them off is increasingly
