Welcome to Programming Internet of Things Course
The Internet of Things technology is infiltrating all areas of business and consumer life. In the business sector IOT is used to handle and manage inventory, hardware monitoring, climate monitoring, facial recognition, and all areas of machine learning. In the public sector IOT is used to control smart homes, cars, and recreation.
One of the earliest classic examples of IoT enabled devices is from the early 1970s when our first ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) went online. Morgan Stanley estimates that we will be surrounded by more than 75 billion IoT devices by 2020 which roughly means 7 devices per person alive at that time. GE claimed that investments in the industrial IoT (IIoT) devices would hit $60 trillion over the span of next 15 years. Smart homes are not a thing of future anymore.
People have already started adopting smart home appliances like Nest thermostat, Philips Hue, and other home automation devices. As per a research did by a company named Zion, the smart home automation market could grow to the staggering number of $53 billion by 2022.
We are about to experience the internet connected smart cars and automated driving. Gartner says, by 2020, a quarter of a billion vehicles will be connected to the internet for improved in-vehicle services and automated driving.
