What Is The Internet Of Things?
The internet of things is the vast network of devices that connect to the internet or to each other to enhance the lives of people who use them. This includes everything from smartphones to medical devices. Wearable fitness trackers, lamps, coffee machines and even washing machines have the ability to operate using a wireless connection today. If you forget to shut off your oven and remember when you are sitting in a traffic jam, you can rest easy if your oven is connected to a home automation system. By simply pulling out your smartphone, opening an app and tapping a button, you can turn off the appliance and breathe a sigh of relief.
In addition to affecting technologies used by consumers in their daily lives, the internet of things affects industries and how businesses operate. As a rule, anything that has a switch to turn it on or off has the potential to become part of the internet of things. Oil drills, jet engines and other important things are being integrated into this network of smart machines. The popular Gartner analyst firm predicted that there will be more than 26 million devices comprising the internet of things by 2020.
How The Internet Of Things Affects Americans
The internet of things is not just about people connecting with things. People can connect with other people through things, people can connect directly with things and things can connect with other things. Since the internet of things is still developing, entrepreneurs who are willing to learn how it works may devise some innovative and profitable ideas. Changes can benefit people and make life more efficient. For example, your car that is connected to the internet of things may sync with your travel calendar on your smartphone. If you have a mid-morning flight from Los Angeles to another major city, the car could plan the most efficient route upon starting based on real-time traffic information. If the lights in your home are also connected and automated for longer periods of travel, the home automation system can turn them off and on randomly to deter home invaders while you are gone.

How The Internet Of Things Affects Businesses And Infrastructure
Some people say that automated food preparation will arrive soon. There are already online ordering options from most fast-food restaurants, and some now offer in-house order kiosks that are virtual cashiers. There are test projects for robotic food preparation, which is possible with the internet of things. Robotic machines could prepare food on an assembly line by communicating with ordering kiosks or online apps. Also, the machines could track popular foods, popular ordering times and inventory to cut down on waste. This is just one example.
When it comes to infrastructure, models for proposed smart cities portray smart roads that display changing signs based on weather, construction and other issues. Streets could be equipped with smart lighting that reduces energy use and adapts to weather changes or the presence of natural light. Also, there could be new developments for real-time parking monitors to help people waste less time trying to find parking spots in busy places. From robotic AI assistants with volumes of medical knowledge to vehicle diagnostic machines, the possibilities appear endless for the internet of things connecting devices and people.
