The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data. This adds a level of digital intelligence to devices that would be otherwise dumb, enabling them to communicate without a human being involved, and merging the digital and physical worlds.The term 'IoT' is mainly used for devices that wouldn't usually be generally expected to have an internet connection that can communicate with the network independently of human action. The benefits of the IoT for business depend on the particular implementation, but the key is that enterprises should have access to more data about their own products and their own internal systems, and a greater ability to make changes as a result.
Smart mobility and ITS
We make use of multiple and various kinds of devices for security , surveillance , smart meter sensors , grid devices , and even the mobile phone is turned into the IoT device so that citizens can be provided information and make them secure. E-Ideas IoT for smart cities is to create safer, more efficient cities by transforming infrastructure, buildings, and services with Internet of Things ( IoT ) solutions.IoT spending in the utilities industry will be dominated by smart grids for electricity, gas, and water. Also spending on cross-industry IoT areas like connected vehicles and smart buildings.
