Internet of Things (IoT) - Dr. Guy Tel-Zur

Introduction: Internet of Things (IoT), the vast array of physical objects equipped with sensors and software that enable them to interact with little human intervention by collecting and exchanging data via a network. The Internet of Things (IoT) includes the many “smart,” computer-like devices so commonplace today, which can connect with the Internet or interact via wireless networks; these “things” include phones, appliances, thermostats, lighting systems, irrigation systems, security cameras. vehicles, even animals and cities. Today, smart watches track exercise and steps, smart speakers add items to shopping lists and switch lights on and off, and transponders allow cars to pass through tollbooths and pay the fee electronically.
The IoT simplifies and automates tasks that are complicated and sometimes beyond the scope of human capabilities. The number of connected devices making up the IoT today ranks in the billions.[Britannica]
