A network of connected object be it car, smartphone, camera or device or sensor – can communicate with other electronic devices  to send and receive data called IoT.
what Internet network is that you are connected with all computer with each others, in mobile networks you can connect with other smartphone- but this internet of thing is actually a object of network connected with sensors etc and can connect with other objects that can include sensors or other devices can communicate with each others and all these sensors can transport data and actually can talk with each others.

How IoT works with Example:

Network of physical object or sensors network example includes google speaker, smart tv, c cooking appliances can communicate and understand your commands
This means that we are moving from traditional devices like mobile phone tablet to other sensors like temperature devices.

So once these sensors are communicating with other devices so must be transmitting data somewhere so it could be process so that area is called services in this connectivity. typically it could be on cloud.

IOT Summary:

In many fields it can be applied if you implement this IOT in manufacturing like car operation section then traditionally there are different mechanism to start and stop production line for purpose.
But understand that there is no replacement of human even if you automate entire production procedure using IOT technology in any operation procedure.

For example you have a manufacturing production procedure where any error occurs then red led bulb lights up and halt the operation so nothing could go wrong any further.

So ideally a solution can contain a IOT device where supervisor is not in operation line then how he will know production line has any super issue, so IOT can solve such issues as well, where error occurs on production line like your computer is connected with raspberry pi and  a sensor when something goes wrong employee attending activity can press a button connected with raspberry pi interface which is connected with your usb port as it required services layer to transport data – so finally this solution can halt the operation due to error issue and can also send SMS using IOT on your smartphone informing  line manager asking  him to take action.

What are security concerns related to IoT

Because any IOT solution or your IOT device communicating with sensors so it will not be done via TCP/IP so we can assume it’s not vulnerable or anyone can hack your IOT device or sensor and breach it so this is just close to impossible in solution based on IOT.

  • For this entire solution to be working you need azure services for iot, raspberry pi, IOT kit, and of course a computer connected with your solution.
  • In this typical example all devices and sensors connected with each other and there is no need for internet to transport data among these devices.
