Generating Data with Devices
The Internet of Things, or IoT, is about devices that generate and transmit data over the Internet. As mentioned in the last chapter, it is estimated that by 2020 there will be over 25 billion “things” (i.e. devices) connected to the Internet; these devices will range from the washer or oven in your house to the watch you wear or the phone in your pocket. The last chapter also covered several scenarios in which the IoT and devices were implemented, including cars, homes, and animals.
