Smart Villages: Application of Internet-of-Things in the Development of Rural India

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE,volume 788)


In rural development Internet of things have great importance as future technologies depend on the Internet of things (IoT) as it helps in interfacing all communication technology with each other as the population is increasing year by year so, it is becoming a big task to run the functions smoothly, with the help of IoT our tasks turn out to be so simple and efficiently such as its first function is to collect the large data from both sensor and remote devices, the second function is to evaluate the receive data and perform suitable actions accordingly. This paper mainly focuses on the initiative about smart villages, by studying their problems in villages and then discussed the solution for those problems. Moreover, it ensures the improvement in the excellence of life in villages by using smart technologies by providing two-way communications with the help of IoT. This small step can help the peoples of rural areas for development and it is the recognized fact that if our rural areas get established then the whole nation will be truly developed.
