Internet of Things, commonly known as IoT is a system of interconnected digital and mechanical devices, objects or people that are given several unique identifiers. It had the ability to share data over a network without needing the help of human-to-computer or human-to-human interaction. The Smart World of IoT It is an internet development which has been proposed to provide everyday objects internet connectivity. These objects are embedded with sensors, electronics, software, actuators and network connectivity that give them the ability to exchange data. The objects are allowed to be sensed and controlled mainly on the networking infrastructure that already exists. IoT hence creates opportunities for more direct alliance of the real world into the electronic and computer based systems that result in economic benefit,

The Internet of Things is the networking of physical objects around you through the use of sensors that can transfer or transmit data about the objects. Data then collected from these devices are used to optimize services, products and operations. The IoT is meant to work everywhere, from homes to offices to hospitals and so on. All the devices within that network communicate and exchange information with each other. ‘Things’ does not specify any object but it is just anything that has a network to connect to other devices around it. It could be heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders and so on. The key market areas where IoT can prove to be a huge success and where IoT apps have potential for growth are listed
