Introduction to the World of Internet of Things.
The basic concept of Internet of Things or IoT (Internet of Things abbreviation) is based on the possibility of granting the ability to interface and exchange information, to all objects around us. This definition apparently simple has a background with implications that could shake up the way that humans get involved with technology and everyday applications.
The premises and the surroundings that surround to this concept of Internet of things, have changed since it was raised for the first time at the end of the 20th century. What for that then seemed a dream too far and futuristic to give much importance, has been approaching at breakneck speed in the last four or five years.
New Technologies and Improvement of the existing.
The evolution of information technology in recent years has been based on an explosive development of Hardware elements, led by processors of high capacity and processing speed, as well as the integration of new elements of input and output such as touch screens, voice recognition devices, capture images and reading of bodily signals systems, satellite positioning systems, and many more.
At the same time, the technological capability of solid-state components manufacturing has been declining sizes of all these devices, to the point of be able to integrate extensive combinations of all these elements, in spaces barely visible to the human eye.
Development and Evolution of Communications and Energy Conversion Systems.
Another element to consider is the evolution in wireless communications technology. All these systems of transmission and reception of signals and information packets that have increasing physical scope and have been made more efficient in energy consumption have been achieved.
On the other hand, there is a rapid development in the exploration of sources of generation and energy storage in an autonomous way, such as solar panels, energy capture by induction, eolic generators, etc. It also occurs with optimization of the requirement of physical space of these elements.
In conclusion, the proposals seemed like a futuristic fiction at the beginning of 2000, have become an imminent reality for which we must prepare ourselves psychologically, given its implications in changing concepts such as Privacy and Self-determination, but even more complex implications on the interrelationship between countries, governments, companies, etc.
If this sounds very dramatic, imagine for a moment the following scenario:
In the “X” Company there is a meeting of the technical Board of Directors, for the submission of a prototype of the product “Y”. It has no competition in the market as it is a new concept.
The projector they are using for the presentation, lives up to the term Internet of Things (IoT). It is “connected” permanently to Computers of the Service Department at Company Manufacturer “Z”.
And this Manufacturer is “accidentally” managing a Project Research and Development of a “W” product. This product is similar to the product cut “Y” being presented at the Meeting.
It sounds like a fiction film mixed with Industrial espionage! Isn’t it?
