The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, wireless sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The term is closely identified with RFID as the method of communication, although it also may include other sensor technologies, wireless technologies or QR codes. The wireless method of electrical communication uses low-powered radio waves to transmit data between devices. High powered transmission sources usually require government licenses to broadcast on a specific wavelength. This platform has historically carried voice and has grown into a large industry, carrying many thousands of broadcasts around the world. Radio waves are now increasingly being used by unregulated computer users.
