Internet of Things (IoT) / machine-to-machine (M2M)
1 - About
Intelligent devices are becoming an ever more important and ubiquitous part of our everyday lives. Mobile phones represented the first wave of smaller personal computers. And now, as the price of electronics and processing power continues to fall, there is an intersection between sensors and other electromechanical devices and computers that live on the edge of the Internet: close to the source of the data, processing the data locally and sending just what is required to other computers to consume. This wave of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, or more broadly, the Internet of Things (IoT), is rapidly shaping the future of computing.
