The Internet of Things (or IoT for short) stands for a network of physical objects that contain internet-aware technologies. Think computers, smart phones, network connected TVs, smart appliances, your car, wearable fitness trackers…heck, pretty much everything has some kind of internet connection these days. These physical objects are integrated into our lives and communicate with each other without requiring any human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Some people call it “M2M” or Machine-to-Machine. Essentially, the idea is that these devices will be able to, and oftentimes already can, identify themselves to other devices and work with each other to communicate and perform certain functions.
