A thing is an entity or physical object that has a unique identifier, an embedded system and the ability to transfer data over a network. For example heart monitoring system, biochip transponders on farm animals, automobiles with built in sensors, DNA analysis device and other wearables, etc.
Components of IoT
Smart systems and Internet of things are driven by a combination of
3. People and Processes
