What is the Internet of Things? And why should you care?

What is the Internet of Things? And why should you care?





the internet of things is changing much about the world we live in from the way we drive to how we make purchases and even how we get energy for our homes sophisticated sensors and chips are embedded in the physical things that surround us each transmitting valuable
data data that lets us better understand.




What is the Internet of Things? And why should you care?




how these things work and work together

but how exactly do all these devices share such large quantities of data and how do we put that information to work whether we're improving the production of a factory giving city residents real-time updates on where to park or monitoring our personal health it's the common Internet of Things platform that brings us diverse information together and provides the common language for the devices and apps to communicate with each other the process starts with the devices themselves which securely communicate with an Internet of Things


platform this platform integrates the data from many devices and applies analytics to share the most valuable data with applications that address industry specific needs let's start with
a simple example a car after taking a long road trip.


Rebecca notices that her check engine light has come on she knows that sheneeds to have her car looked at by a mechanic but is not sure whether it's something minor or something that needs immediate attention as it turns out the sensor that triggered Rebecca's check
engine light monitors the pressure in her brake line this sensor is one of many monitoring processes throughout the car which are constantly communicating with each other a component in the car called the diagnostic bus gathers the data from all these sensors then passes it to a gateway in the car the Gateway integrates and sorts the data from the sensors this way only the most relevant diagnostic information will betransmitted to the manufacturers platform but before sending this organized data the cars gateway and
platform must first register with each other and confirm a secure communication.




Internet of Things






the platform is constantly gathering andstoring thousands of bits of information from Rebecca's car and hundreds ofthousands of cars like hers building an historical record in a secure database the manufacturers added rules and logic to the platform so when Rebecca's car sends a signal that her brake fluid has dropped below a recommended level the platform triggers an alert in her car the manufacturer also uses the platform to create and manage applications that solve specific issues in this case the manufacturer can deploy an application on the platform called the asset management system this application oversees all of their customers cars on the road as well as all the parts in their warehouses it uses the data fromRebecca's car to offer her a potential appointment time to service her car directions to the nearest certified.


Internet of Things





dealer and a coupon for the servicewhat's more the app will ensure that Rebecca's brakes are covered under her warranty that the correct replacement part is ordered and then sent to the dealership so it is ready when she arrives but the manufacturers analysis does not stop there they have also deployed a continuous engineering application that tracks not only Rebecca's car but hundreds of thousands of others looking for ways to improve the design and manufacturing process of the car itself if the same problem in her brake line crops up in a critical number of other cars the manufacturer uses applications custom-built
for the automobile industry to pinpoint the exact problem they can see if these cars


were made at the same factory used the same parts or came off the assembly line
on the same day so what do all these pieces add up to streamlined inventory management for the dealer a better safer car from the manufacturer and for Rebecca it means she can be back on the road faster and get to where she's going safely all thanks to the Internet of things.
