The Internet of Things is a modern phenomenon that is going to change the entire world of technology starting this next couple of years. Don’t believe it? Then listen to Jason Hope, an entrepreneur, startup developer of success and technology specialist. According to the expert Jason Hope, the Internet of Things, or IoT for abbreviation, is one of the biggest advancements in the tech industry that society has experienced since the Internet itself.The famous Gartner Inc. published that the Internet of Things would be connected to as many as 25 billion objects by 2020. This insane prediction is not far from the truth, with every big company pursuing the new technology. Google, Microsoft, and Apple are all implementing the new network to their new releases for the future.
This new technology, states Jason Hope, is a way that technology developers found to connect everyday gadgets together with the same way that computers are linked through the network. By using their own connections with each device having a dedicated IP, utensils as common as light bulbs, watches, and refrigerators, will be able to connect with sensors to perform certain actions that were never possible before this new technology. “IoTized products” will now be able to share data among themselves through their network.
Among most promising IoT products, cars are showing great potential to use the technology for the advancement of how cars can perform certain actions without the command of the driver, for example. On the same note, it can be used in streets to send detailed information on the current traffic of that location. The possibilities are endless.
One of the most impressive uses of the Internet of Things that can exemplify what the technology is able to do is how it was implemented by airlines to monitor their airplanes while on the flight.The plane is completely connected to the network, and all parts of the machine are linked to each other and then with the central headquarters. Then, whenever the plane shows signs of malfunctioning, the central receives the warning, and the plane will have its components replaced before it flies again after he landed.Jason Hope, author at Tech.Co where he published his opinions on the subject, is on the board of Arizona Science Center as the director of the group, and he is currently working at Mobile Technology.
