Technological basis of the internet of things and ubiquitous computing

High-speed Internet has become more widely available, the cost of the connection is down, more devices are created with the capacity and sensors integrated into the Wi-Fi technology costs are falling, and smartphone penetration is mounted arrow. All these things create a “perfect storm” for the IoT. The “Internet of Things” (IoT) is a subject increasingly growing conversation, both in the workplace and outside of it. It is a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live, but also how we work. There are many complexities around the “Internet of things” but I want to stick to the basics. Many technical conversations and related policies had but many people are still just trying to understand the basis of what the heck these conversations are about.2016-07-12-1468314021-5633148-internetofthings.jpg

In other words, it is the concept of principle to connect a device with on and off the internet (and / or the other). This includes everything from mobile phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, portable appliances and almost anything you can think of. This also applies to the machine components, for example a jet engine of an airplane or the drilling of an oil well. As I mentioned, if it has a switch on and off then chances are it may be a part of the IoT. The IoT is a giant network of connected “things” (which also includes the people). The relationship will be between the people-people, people, things and things, things.

Finally, “Internet of Things” to Refer to the general idea of things, Especially everyday objects, That are readable, recognizable, locatable, addressable, and / or controllable via the Internet, whether via RFID, wireless LAN, wide-area network, or – -Other means.Everyday objects includes not only the electronic devices we encounter everyday, and not only the products of Higher Technological development Such as vehicles and equipment, purpose Things That we do not ordinarily think of as electronic at all-such as food, clothing , and shelter; materials, parts, and subassemblies; commodities and luxury items, landmarks, boundaries, and monuments; and all the miscellany of commerce and culture.

I would like to share some concepts that I found online as follows

What the Internet of Things is Not By Tomas Sánchez López
The IoT is not ubiquitous/pervasive computing
The IoT is not the Internet Protocol
The IoT is not communication technologies
The IoT is not embedded devices
The IoT is not the applications
Four Stages in the Internet of Things
By Kevin Kelly
I think we can see a fourth stage beyond. That fourth stage is the drift towards linking up the things themselves. You want all the data about a thing to be embedded into the thing. You want location information embedded at, or in, the location itself. You actually want to connect not to the airline’s computer, nor to the airline’s flight page, nor to the flight data, but to the flight itself. Ideally, we would connect to the embedded processing and raw information in the airplane, in your particular seat, at the airport’s slot — the entire complex of items and services we call “the flight.” What we ultimately want is an internet of things.

Best Internet of Things Definition http://www.postscapes.com/internet-of-things-definition/

Read Tim O’Reilly’s “Software Above the Level of a Single Device – The Implications”

This is a time for the most prodigious feats of imagination, the application of hardware, software, big data, sociology, and creativity redesign processes and institutions, not just things. Once the driver and potential passengers were instrumented with reports of their devices in real-time location, it has become possible to completely rethink urban transport.It is easy to speak of the “Internet of Things” and miss the bigger reason: we are not only to build software for individual devices, but the creation of intelligence and action networks that allow completely rethink the way we organize work, play, and society itself.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Humans and machines work together in a complex pattern, where data is captured through human activity, stored in the cloud, pre-processed, and then used by a robot in the Internet of Things.
  • If we really want it to be an Internet, as opposed to a set of Intranets, we have to think about interoperability.
  • The smartphone that we carry in our pockets is filled with sensors, and it’s filled with capabilities, which is the key component to so many of these things.
