System Model for the Internet of Things

The phrase “Internet of Things” was coined about 10 years ago by the founders of the original MIT Auto-ID Center, Kevin Ashton in 1999 and David L. Brock in 2001 , who envisioned “a world in which all electronic devices are networked and every object, whether it is physical or electronic, is electronically tagged with information pertinent to that object.” They envisioned use of physical tags that allow remote, contactless interrogation of their contents; thus, enabling all physical objects to act as nodes in a networked physical world. Realization of this vision will yield benefits in diverse areas including supply chain management and inventory control, product tracking and location identification, and human-computer and human-object interfaces . Several technologies drive the IoT’s vision.
