The Internet of Things (IOT) describes a worldwide network of intercommunicating devices.
At this point (IOT) must be seen as a vision where "things", especially everyday objects, such as
nearly all home appliances but also furniture, clothes, vehicles, roads and smart materials, and
more, are readable, recognizable, locatable, addressable and/or controllable via the Internet. This
will provide many new applications, such as energy monitoring, transport safety systems or
building security. This vision will surely change with time, especially as synergies between
Identification Technologies, Wireless Sensor Networks, Intelligent Devices and Nanotechnology
will enable a number of advanced applications
IoT is the ability for things that contain embedded technologies to sense, communicate, interact, and collaborate with other things, thus creating a network of physical objects
There are several applications of networked Things in Agriculture, Healthcare, Retail, Transport, Environment, Supply chain management, Infrastructure monitoring etc. Some of them are listed below:
Agriculture: Applications in Agriculture include Soil and plant monitoring, Monitoring of food supply chain, Monitoring of animals
Retail Management: Retailing has many applications areas of business interest. It includes monitoring customer behavior and preferences, Shelf stock tracking, context based advertising and product promotions, vending machines, automated checkout, and theft control.
Healthcare: Identification of spurious drugs is a major application in healthcare area. Other application areas are personal health monitoring, telemedicine, assisted living.
Security: Detection of counterfeit goods, Access control, restricted materials, Banknotes, Passports.
Government and public sector: Disaster management, Forest monitoring, Tourism support, Homeland security, Pollution monitoring.
Home: Home security, Smart - home (lighting, entertainment, energy management, assistance) Sports: Sports equipment: user performance monitoring, Safety.
