With the emergence of smart devices there is a growing concern related to breach of data security and various potential privacy intrusions. There have always been growing issues regarding the spread of the first invented technology. Just when the electricity was invented, there were trouble spreading the word that the most powerful invention has happened in the history of mankind. In the same manner, users are still starting to explore a new niche of smart devices where the environment would interact and all the “stuff” around would be connected to internet. Here the “stuff” means everything, for instance, toothbrush, street lighting and so on.
When we think of devices we often think of smartphones and tablets. But the IOT means a genuine spread of technology to the users’ lives. There are several cities in the entire world and all of the people are connected via internet. The cities and the culture might vary but one significant thing that binds all users togethers is our need to stay together. Internet has always been a great medium to connect one person to the entire world. Therefore, adjusting the devices as per the city needs is crucial. A lot of research needs to be done in this area as demands of users and there betterment could vary. A sea-side city might need devices to check on the habitation of sharks whereas a city where there are a number of bridges might require several sensors fitted onto the bridges for greater check on the architecture, their wear- tear and repair.
Thus, Internet of Things is not completely about smart devices and applications but also reducing human intervention into areas where the machines could do their work. With the application of RFID, WiFi and artificial intelligence techniques, all the machines around humans could well be connected to reduce users’ work, in return incrementing user efficiency and lifestyle.
