INTERNET OF THINGS The world and everything inside it has in one way or the other have been affected by the bursting technological innovations in recent times. These technological innovations and inventions is mostly caused due to the introduction of the internet. One of these inventions is the Internet of things (IoT).

The Internet of things is the network of physical devices, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data [1].

With its network of “smart,” sensor-enabled devices that can communicate and coordinate with one another via the Internet, the IoT could facilitate computer-mediated strategies for conducting business, providing healthcare, and managing city resources, among numerous other tasks. For the public, the IoT could transform many of our most mundane activities by enabling innovations as diverse as self-driving cars and connected refrigerators capable of sending pictures of their contents to shoppers in grocery stores.

The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, virtual power plants, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities
