IoT has evolved from the convergence of wirelesstechnologies, micro-</p><p>electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet.</p><p>A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip</p><p>transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensorsto alert the driver when tire pressure is low -- or any other</p><p>natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP addressand provided with the ability to transfer data over</p><p>a network. So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M)</p><p>communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication</p><p>capabilities are often referred to as being smart.(See: smart label, smart meter, smart grid sensor)</p><p>IPv6shuge increase in address space is an important factor in the development of the Internet of Things.</p><p>According to Steve Leibson, who identifies himself as occasional docent at the Computer History Museum,</p><p>the address space expansion means that we could assign an IPV6 address to every atom on the surface of the</p><p>earth, and still have enough addresses left to do another 100+ earths. In other words, humans could easily</p><p>assign an IP address to every "thing" on the planet. An increase in the number of smart nodes, as well as the</p><p>amount of upstream data the nodes generate, is expected to raise new concerns about data privacy, data</p><p>sovereigntyand security.</p><p>Although the concept wasn't named until 1999, the Internet of Things has been in development for decades.

Heres how Ashton explains the potential of the Internet</p><p>of Things:</p><p>Today computers -- and, therefore, the Internet -- are almost wholly dependent on human beings for</p><p>information. Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes(a petabyte is 1,024 terabytes) of data available on the</p><p>Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital</p><p>picture or scanning a bar code.</p><p>The problem is, people have limited time, attention and accuracy -- all of which means they are not very good</p><p>at capturing data about things in the real world. If we had computers that knew everything there was to know</p><p>about things -- using data they gathered without any help from us -- we would be able to track and count</p><p>everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing</p><p>or recalling and whether they were fresh or past their best.</p><p>Dr. John Barrett explains the Internet of Things in his TED talk:</p><p>See also:ubiquitous computing, Internet of Things security (IoT security)</p><p>This was last updated in June 2014</p><p>Contributor(s):Ivy Wigmore</p><p>Posted by:Margaret Rouse</p><p>Related Terms</p><p>Definitions</p><p>VMware vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS)</p><p>is Internet of Things (IoT)? - Definition from WhatIs.com http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/Internet-</p><p> 0 7/16/2014</p></li><li><p>7/21/2019 What is Internet of Things (IoT)_ - Definition From WhatIs</p><p> 4/10</p><p>- VMware vCloud Suite is a collection of applications built on VMware's vSphere platform for building a</p><p>private cloud infrastructure.(SearchVMware.com)</p><p>headless system</p><p>- A headless system is a computer that operates without a monitor, graphical user interface (GUI) or the</p><p>typical peripherals used to control it, such as a keyboard and mouse.
