The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a vital role in the industrial automation as it is starting to explore and implement IoT concepts and technology. IoT helps to streamline, collapse, and create system architectures that are effective, affordable and responsive. The major aim is to create frictionless communications and interaction from manufacturing field input/output including analyzers, actuators, robotics etc to enhance flexibility and increased manufacturing. Using IoT, the industrial automation has leveraged commercial technologies in major applications and these examples include PLCs displacing banks of relays.
Internet of Things is the next big technology revolution and it is simply internet connected devices that are capable to gather data. Many Internet of Things products fit smoothly into the patterns of daily life by simplifying routine tasks. IoT products come in various ways and they can be used in different verticals. Using IoT products, business and consumer lives can be more seamless than ever.
Internet of things devices can be used in various fields and they may vary from home automation and the functionality of your house. Devices such as smoke detectors, thermostats, smart music systems, smart light bulbs come under this category. On the other hand, IoT devices are also present in the interaction with the human body, where we can talk about fitness trackers, smart body scales or even baby monitors.
