These technologies has been imagined by Kevin Ashton coined the term Internet of Things, Neil Gershenfeld of MIT Media Lab wrote the book “When Things Start to Think,” This was in 1999 and it was estimated that just 4% of the world’s population was online.
Thanks to recent advances in smart sensor technology, the IoT has begun to ramp up at a much greater pace. “Simply put, a smart sensor is a device that takes input from the physical environment and uses built-in computing resources to perform functions when they detect specific input and then processes data before passing it on.
Despite wide concern about cyberattacks, outages and privacy violations, most experts believe the Internet of Things will continue to expand successfully the next few years, tying machines to machines and linking people to valuable resources, services and opportunities.
The book “When Things Start to Think,” - Gershenfeld was offering a glimpse at the brave new post-computerized world, where microchips work for us instead of against us. He argues that we waste the potential of the microchip when we confine it to a box on our desk: the real electronic revolution will come when computers have all but disappeared into the walls around us. This is vision most innovative companies and startups are trying so hard to archive.
Today, over 50% of the world’s population is connected online and an estimated 10 billion connected things are in use worldwide.
The most public items in the burgeoning IoT are cars, voice-activated assistants, appliances and other home systems, physician-prescribed or recommended health-monitoring devices, road sensors, public-safety and security devices, smart meters and personal fitness and health trackers for people and animals – dogs, cats, horses, cows and more.
The accessibility to technology innovation had brought forward into reality, the vision of "Things Start to Think".
With traffic accidents accounting for the most deaths across the globe, estimated that 1.35 million lives are lost each year.
