Internet of Things (IoT) :  IoT is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, or people that are provided with unique identifiers. Thus it can be said that it is an internetworking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity. 

The internetworking has ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT is also dubbed as the infrastructure of the information society. It allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure. 

Thus it creates opportunities for more direct integration of physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved accuracy, efficiency and economic benefits.
