Understanding Various Aspects of the Internet of Things
In the last article, which is the overview of IoT, we discovered the meaning, function, scope, development, and future statistics of IoT. Today in the world of Artificial Technology, IoT has also scaled many heights. The scope is increasing rapidly and by the year 2025, there would be IoT in 80 billion connected devices! The number is true according to everyday statistics. IoT is made by Designer, Engineers, software developers, hackers, etc. It is a global neural network. There are various aspects included in understanding IoT, and in this article, we’ll learn some of them. Let’s unfold them one by one:
- Enchanted Objects: Ever heard about Smart Umbrella? An umbrella that will forecast weather for you so that you know when you’ll need an umbrella the most. Also, the smart umbrella will automatically open when it rains. Enchanted objects mean embedding extraordinarily smart technology into your normal thing. It is also said that such things (Enchanted objects) have magical capabilities and ease the work and make life smarter.
- The metaphor of IoT: IoT has often given term as Metaphor because it makes normal objects smart. (example of a smart umbrella) They are considered objects that are no less than magic. Things are portable, flexible, reliable, understand human emotions, convenient, ease human efforts and work, make life easy, etc.
- Normalcy field: Technology Blogger, Venkatesh Rao said ‘We live in the past and don’t see the present.’ He introduced the term Manufacture Normalcy field in IoT. When using IoT devices, it is important to balance security because security comes first, and don’t trust everything on the Internet. Provide only necessary information, not more than it needs. Verify the message you receive carefully and follow encryption.
- Calm and Ambient Technology: Calm and Ambient Technology was first introduced by Mark Weiser at Xerox PARC in 1990. Calm technology specifies that a need for technology that only provides you useful and meaningful information, and doesn’t demand unnecessary attention whereas Ambient technology means something (functions or programs) that are continuously acting in the background.
These were some of the aspects or principles for connected devices. Everything you imagine that a normal thing can do for you will be served to you in the future. Some of them are already there for you while some are on the way. Internet of Things.
