We connected computers in the past, Now computers are connecting us…!!

A new revolution is going to happen in the world with connected devices and human life. We can call it as Internet of Things. Now lot of discussions and experiments are happening around the world to make this concept a reality. This is a very simple concept from the point of view of a person who knows electronics. But the problem is that for making this internet of things a reality and to make it usable by every individuals, it needs much more effort. For developing an application that makes our life easier by connecting things, we need the skillsets of a software engineer and electronics engineer. An electronics engineer can design the circuit, wire up and get the signals in the proper way. But those signals are just some electrical signals which will be useful only to the technical people. These systems were already in the past. Then what is different in IoT..??

IoT includes connecting systems, sensing each and every members in the network and controlling of every single node in the network based on the feedback. The control may not be based on a pre-written script, it can be dynamic. This requires extensive analytic knowledge along with electronics knowledge. If we sense and control every member of a large network, the data size will be high. Here we have big data solutions. So if we combine the electronics and analytic knowledge, we can build superb systems that can revolutionize the world. If we make everything connected and everything under control, there are some pros and cons. This will be just like the atomic energy. Good people used it for energy sustenance by generating energy and bad people used it as atom bomb for destroying people. Hope IoT will be used in the right way..!!!!
