What Is IoT (Internet of Things)? 

[wow-icons lib=gmi name=device_hub color=”#1db0e5″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] As per the wikipedia, the Internet of things is the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects.

The Steps Involved Around IoT ( Internet of Things)

1. Data Ingestion

[wow-icons lib=fa name=fa-wifi color=”#dd3333″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] IoT devices/sensors collect data from the environment. The data can be as simple as temperature/humudity or it can be as complex as a full video feed.

[wow-icons lib=gmi name=data_usage color=”#f2a41f” size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] The data needs to be sent to the cloud to be analyzed. But it needs a way to get there.

2. Data Transmission

[spacer height=”5px”]

[wow-icons lib=fa name=fa-bluetooth-b color=”#1e73be” size=”nm” align=”alignleft”]The data is transmitted to the cloud via Gateways (Telemetry Devices), The gateways use both the cellular as well as the satelite communication to transmit the data.

[wow-icons lib=di name=dashicons-lock color=”#000000″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”]To ensure data security, protocols such as Bluetooth, Sig Fox, LoRa, NB-IoT, ZigBee, COAP, REST, DDS, MQIT, XMPP, etc. are used

3. Data Processing

[wow-icons lib=tp name=typcn-arrow-repeat-outline color=”#dd3333″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] Once the data gets to the cloud, IoT platform processes it. The processing can be as simple as checking if the temperature is within the acceptable range or it could be very complex, such as using computer vision on the video to identify objects.

How IoT ( Internet of Things) Works ? Step By Step Process Explained!

Data processing cycle consists of three stages: Input (Data), Processing (+ Storage), and Output (information). This is the stage where data is collected and converted into a machine-readable form.

The second stage is processing. It is where data is classified into groups, arranged in an order (for example: alphabetical) and calculated (via arithmetic and logical operations).

At the third stage, the data is converted into human-readable form.

During the data processing cycle, the information is stored for future use.

4. Data Visualization

[spacer height=”5px”]

[wow-icons lib=gmi name=email color=”#218ece” size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] The processed data (Information) is made to the end-user by providing alerts to the user (E-Mails, text, notification). The user might have an application (interface) that allows him to proactively check-in to the system.

5. Data Analysis And Prediction

[spacer height=”5px”]

[wow-icons lib=gmi name=pie_chart color=”#ffae23″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”] To utilize the data collected over the time, data analytics makes use of the historical data to provide actionable insights. Insights help in predicting future events that may occur.

[spacer height=”5px”]

[wow-icons lib=di name=dashicons-businessman color=”#1f89c6″ size=”nm” align=”alignleft”]You  can make intelligent business decisions based on the insights and predictions generated from the data.
