Definition: Defining the Meaning of Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as the network of physical objects - devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data. A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, an vehicle with built-in sensors to alert the driver, or any object that can be assigned an IP address with ability to transfer data over a network. IoT is basically the concept of connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet, and/or to each other.
