Maybe you've heard about the Internet of Things (loT). It's the network of physical objects (or "things") that connect to the Internet and each other and have the ability to collect and exchange data. It includes a variety of devices with sensors, vehicles, buildings, and other items that contain electronics, software, and sensors. Some loT objects have "embedded intelligence," which allows them to detect and react to changes in their physical state. Though there is no specific definition of loT, the concept focuses on how computers, sensors, and objects interact with each other and collect information relating to their surroundings.
