The Internet of things (IoT) is the connection via the Internet, of physical objects or ‘things’, i.e., any devices with embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each ‘thing’ is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure. It is a domain where devices communicate, swap data and respond as they have been programmed to do, largely without human interaction or intervention.
