Currently, the rapid evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) has become very popular due to the need of its consumers to be in places where they cannot be physically present. The IoT is equipped with sensors, software, and other technologies that allow your devices to have the possibility of capturing the data that they will be able to see, hear, or perceive.
The internet of things encompasses any thing or object that can be connected to an internet network, taking into account that this can range from factory equipment and internal transportation to mobile devices and smartwatches, so any object that we can imagine could be connected to the Internet and interact without the need for human intervention, recognizing that its main goal is machine-to-machine interaction and assisting industries to grow and develop to stay on track.
On the other hand, IoT has become mainly all the applications it provides to improve and facilitate the daily lives of consumers, especially in business environments, as previously mentioned, but without neglecting the possibility of connecting everyday objects, such as household appliances, cars, thermostats, and baby monitors, to the internet through integrated devices, allowing us to have seamless communication between people, processes, and things. So we use these technologies extensively on a daily basis without having the technical knowledge that the technological devices we use are part of the IoT family.
As a consequence of the recognition of the internet of things, we must not leave aside technologies such as sensors, connectivity that facilitate connection, and cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) platforms that offer us the possibility of a life with many facilities and greater challenges in the future.
