As it is already known, Internet of Things is the next big thing in the very close feature, or we could just say that it’s already present. The hype around this subject has rapidly grown.
When facing IoT for the first time it can be tricky to choose the right prototyping board, and we will try to give you some hints with this article. Before we even start talking about a prototyping board, we cannot skip mentioning something about Internet of Things in general.
There is no simple definition of IoT, but there are several descriptions taking into account different aspects. Generally speaking, IoT is the combination of wireless technologies, micro-controllers, services and Internet.
The internet is the tool devices used to connect with each other, which means that every single device needs to have the ability to connect to the network so that they can exchange data and information.
All devices exchange data through internet and they are able to collect information about their surroundings by using sensors. Every single “thing” connected to the network can be either the source or the destination of the information flow. From this point of view, the security aspect plays an essential role: it is of highest importance that all the data stays secure.
Internet of Things will have a huge impact in agriculture, energy, health-care, logistics and transportaion.
