The world of the Internet of Things [Infographic]

The expression Internet of Things indicates a network of objects, each of them equipped with components and sensors, integrated and able to communicate with each other and from a centralized system. No matter how complex the structure might be; the intelligent communications of simple objects like a coffee machine or a wearable, as well as a complicated autonomous vehicle, are always based on three pillars: the objects, of course, the network and, often, the cloud, “home” of the informations that makes the connected objects so smart.

Since the world of the Internet of Things is still waiting to be fully understood, research companies Postscapes and Harbor Research have summarized the main objects, processes, applications and opportunities offered by the Internet of Things and have collected them in an interesting infographic. Enjoy!
