The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data. The IoT allows objects to be sensed and 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.
Tek Factory works on the expansion of Internet-connected automation into a plethora of new application areas. IoT is also expected to generate large amounts of data from diverse locations, with the consequent necessity for quick aggregation of the data and an increase in the need to index, store, and process such data more effectively. IoT is one of the platforms of today’s Smart City and Smart Energy Management Systems.
