Internet of Things (IOT) as the name suggests is an idea that inspired by the internet. The internet interconnects computers in a network that spans the world. The IOT is a network with its components as sensors and actuators integrated in physical objects. These objects range from home appliances like refrigerators and television sets to pacemakers and road side cameras. In other words any object that accommodates a microchip can be linked to the IOT. These objects are connected via wired or wireless technologies. Interestingly the IOT use the same Protocol that drives the Internet.

The internet is a very successful technology that circulates information. However all the data is sourced from human activity. The flow of data in the IOT is independent of human activity. The IOT builds its information resources via intelligent systems

Imagine a thermostat controlling the central heating which doesn’t need to take direct inputs from the user who is at home, at work or on holiday. Another example is smart street lighting driven by visibility, weather and traffic conditions. Nanotechnology enabled bots traverse the human bloodstream continuously sending back invaluable real time medical data. The potential of the IOT is enormous. It also promises reduced energy consumption and waste of resources. This reflects in the better health of the Environment. Business, Industry and individuals will save enormous cost and time due to optimized efficiency and reduced losses.


Presently IOT can connect in excess of 12 billion devices to the Internet. Estimates by IDC researchers indicate that by 2020 the number of connected things will exceed connected people by 26 times or more. Statistics by Gartner reveal that the IOT growth will be driven by consumer sector applications. To meet this demand the manufacturing sector must show great growth. The IOT applications in Environmental Science include weather science, soil analysis, crop management, agriculture markets and resource management.

The field of Medicine will be revolutionized with IOT. It promises wearable implant devices and automated health services. It gives patients the power to track their symptoms and vital signs in real time. Such technologies could save millions through a reduced need for appointments, onsite tests and unnecessary treatment.

IOT is a vast topic but there are majorly two categories: Consumer IOT (consumer electronics, home entertainment etc) and Industrial IOT (actuators, sensors etc). The IOT needs inputs from a lot of knowledge disciplines. Hence the learners study a wide range of subjects.


The IOT is a field of research and exploration. As such it has unending potential in the field of research and development. Learners can opt for academic careers and can contribute to the development IOT solutions.

IOT is a great opportunity for the budding entrepreneurs who can set up successful businesses to provide solutions to the consumers. A number of profiles that students can work in are IoT System Administrator, Machine Learning Engineer, IoT App Developer, IoT Solution Architect and IoT Scientist.
