The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity, which enable these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but can interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure.
As a result, the sensors used in IoT play an extremely important role, with various applications.
Some of the most common types of sensors in IoT are temperature, level, and pressure sensors, as well as gas flow sensors used to measure and monitor a plethora of gases in industrial and medical environments.
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.
