Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT)

Instructor: Justin Wilson

The term IoT, or the Internet of Things, was coined in the early 2000’s and refers to the emerging network of interconnected devices that work together within an environment to record, transmit, and process data.
IoT refers to “smart” devices that have not traditionally been connected to the internet, such as automobiles, traffic lights, home appliances, cameras, sensors, and more.

In this course, we are going to learn about different aspects of the "Internet of Things", such as Industrial Internet of Things or IIoT, Smart Sensors, Smart Machines, Smart Factories and so on.
