IoT: Apps for Everyday Objects
November 17th, 2015 | Rachel Tepper, Operations Manager
In the broadest terms, the Internet is about light-speed connectivity between people, media and companies. With the Internet, ideas, data and money can be exchanged across the globe almost instantly.
The Internet of things (IoT) is the next step in rapid communication as everyday objects with sensors and microchips will collect data and share it with other everyday objects, or things. Some examples will create convenience, like a fridge that tracks food that’s been eaten or expired and then sends a grocery list to your phone. Other applications will increase safety, like cars that communicate with each other on driving conditions, rough patches of road or who just ran a red light. In the future, more than just your phone or tablet will have an app.
