IoT Use Cases.


What is IoT (Internet of Things)?

The IoT refers to a network of interconnected devices, sensors, actuators, and other objects that collect, exchange, and act on data through embedded sensors, software, and communication technologies. In simple terms, IoT enables everyday objects to connect to the internet and communicate with each other, enabling remote monitoring, control, and automation of physical devices and environments. IoT is a result of gradual miniaturization and democratization of hardware and sensors over decades. The tipping point arrived after 2010 when several low cost IoT hardware kits arrived, making it possible to build integrated hardware and software applications. Along the lines, came newer possibilities for gathering data from any foreseeable sources for building more advanced IoT use cases  

Top IoT Technology Domains

IoT middleware is software layer that resides between the IoT devices and applications to facilitate certain functions within a large IoT system. It provides a set of services and capabilities to manage the complexity of IoT deployments, abstracting the underlying infrastructure and devices to enable interoperability, scalability, and flexibility.

IoT communication refers to the exchange of data between Internet of Things (IoT) devices, sensors, actuators, gateways, and backend systems over various communication protocols and networks. IoT communication enables devices to interact with each other, transmit sensor data to cloud platforms, receive commands and updates, and facilitate remote monitoring and control.

A device cloud is a cloud-based platform or service that enables the management, monitoring, and control of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and assets. It provides the infrastructure and tools for connecting, provisioning, configuring, and managing large fleets of IoT devices distributed across diverse environments. 

Industrial IoT (IIoT) is a discipline within Internet of Things (IoT) and it applies IoT principles and technologies to industrial processes, equipment, and systems, enabling the integration of sensors, actuators, devices, and data analytics to optimize manufacturing, logistics, energy management, and other industrial operations.

A hardware platform is an underlying physical infrastructure on which software applications, services, and solutions are built and executed. It encompasses the microprocessor, or microcontroller, additional peripheral components, operating system, and interface that provide the computing resources, processing power, and connectivity required to build custom software functionality. 

Firmware is a type of software that is embedded into hardware devices to control their operation and provide low-level functionality. It serves as the intermediary between the hardware components of a device and the higher-level software applications that run on it. Firmware is typically stored in non-volatile memory (e.g., ROM, flash memory) and is permanently programmed into the device during manufacturing
