Internet of things or IoT is physical objects embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies through which they communicate data with other devices over the internet or any other communication network.
These devices are used to gather the data, communication, automation of the process using technologies like machine learning, wireless data transfers, the internet, and big data computing.
IoT is being implemented or applied in many industries, including home automation to make smart homes, wearable technologies like smartwatches in the health & fitness industry, farming industries for precision farming, etcetera.
IoT has gained immense attention in recent years due to its applications in vast fields and is still very popular because of its growth potential and new applications like infrastructure, maritime applications, health care applications, and automation of every physical activity.
One of the best examples of its growth is shown by E-commerce giants in their recent introduction of Amazon Go, a brick & mortar shop which is staff-less, and the general public will be able to do shopping using their phones.
