What is IoT(internet of things)?

There're plenty of projects called “IoT products”, but, what is IoT(internet of things)?

1. IoT Definition

We understand it:
IoT is Connecting something into the internet, so it can be sensed, or controlled, by other people, or other things. All the things included, the connected thing itself, the internet, the related technology and policy, they called IoT.

That is, IoT could be a car that connected to GSM/GPS, could be an ARM IC, could be Lora connection, and even policy to help the entrepreneurs to create their first project.
the meaning of IOT

2. For IoT solutions, it should be:

1. Cheap enough. To support they are being produced with large quantity;
2. Simple & strong, to support they are stable even in bad circumstances;
3. Low power, to make them alive even with battery;
4. Low translation rate. Different from normal internet apply, in many IoT projects, they do not need high translation rate;
5. Mass. Think about the sand on a beach.

3. There're plenty of technology needed for IoT:

1. How to sense, and control... There're plenty of sensors, but not enough… 
2. How things addressed; include the hardware and software;
3. How things connected to the internet, include the LAN and WAN...
4. How to deal with large data...
5. How to deal with the relationship between AI vs Human?
