The Internet of Things is a term you’ve probably heard about in recent months. But do you really know what he means?

The Internet of Things connects billions of objects and billions of humans. It can now be considered one of the most powerful tools for creating, modifying and sharing countless amounts of information. Indeed, the IoT aims to make objects interact with each other and with individuals. It promises to be the engine of great transformations in the lives of individuals by democratizing new uses and services in the mobility sector. And yet, IoT experts estimate that only 1% of its potential is exploited today. That’s why it’s compared to the internet of the future.

By 2020, the Gartner Institute plans to have more than 50 billion connected devices on the market. Suffice to say that we are witnessing a real digital revolution that will radically change our lifestyles.
Considered as the third evolution of the Internet, called Web 3.0 which follows the era of the social Web, the Internet of objects takes on a character universal to designate connected objects for various uses.
The Internet of Things appeared as part of a heavy trend, resulting from mechanization and standardization, applied to the automation of document and information processing on material and then digital media. Appeared in the United States in 1982, it quickly spread with globalization, resulting in connecting machines to servers capable of supervising them.
The Internet of Things works primarily with sensors and connected objects placed in/on physical infrastructure. These sensors will then transmit data which will go up using a wireless network on IoT platforms. They can thus be analyzed and enriched to get the best benefit from them. These data management and data visualization platforms are the new IoT solutions allowing territories, companies or even users to analyze data and draw conclusions in order to be able to adopt practices.
