The Internet of Things is not a new concept in the industry
The Internet of Things is not a new concept in the industry. In 2000’s, Kevin Ashton started working on IoT at MIT Auto ID lab .The concept was simple but powerful. If every objects of daily routine were equipped with identity and wireless connectivity, these objects would be communicate with each other and be controlled by computers. In a 1999 article for the RFID Journal Ashton wrote: “If we have computers that know everything using data they gathered without any help from us we could track and calculate things, and could make our society more efficient. We let it know when objects need repairing , replacing. We should give power to computers with their own means of getting information, so they can feel the world for themselves, in all its random glory. RFID and sensor technology make computers to observe, identify and understand the world—without the limitations of human”.
