What is Internet of Things?

Internet of Things is one of the fastest growing fields of engineering. The IoT deals with how various things connected to the internet, work in sync with each other. Currently, the smartphone technology is getting more and more advanced every day, and almost everything around you can be connected and operated through the means of your smartphone. From your car to your home lights, everything is soon going to be interconnected by means of the internet giving you unlimited access to the items that you use on a daily basis.

The Internet of Things training will help you in understanding how various smart devices connected to the Internet communicate with each other to share important data. Also, this training will allow you to engineer your devices to connect various smart devices on a network.

Course Focus

The course is focused on two different and important things in the field of Internet of Things. The first focus is to understand the inter-connectivity of devices over the internet. The second focus is to provide engineering solutions to convert any particular technology into a smart device.

 

The Internet of things or (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as “connected devices” and “smart devices”), buildings, and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data. In 2013 the Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things (IoT-GSI) defined the IoT as “the infrastructure of the information society. The IoT allows objects to be sensed and/or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.

Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a smart grid

Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology – Government of India recognizes & initiates the importance of Internet of Things (IoT) to create ecosystem for IoT industry in the country.
The digital space has witnessed major transformations in the last couple of years and as per industry experts would continue to evolve itself. The latest entrant to the digital space is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT can also be defined as interplay for software, telecom and electronic hardware industry and promises to offer tremendous opportunities for many industries.

With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), the number of connected sensors soon will reach trillions, working with billions of intelligent systems involving in-numerous applications will drive new consumer and business behaviour. The demand for increasingly intelligent industry solutions based on IoT will drive trillions of dollars in opportunity for IT industry and even more for the companies that take advantage of the IoT.

One of the top most initiatives in the form of Digital India Program of the Government which aims at ‘transforming India into digital empowered society and knowledge economy’ is expected to provide the required impetus for development of the IoT industry ecosystem in the country.
