Industrial IoT: What is the Importance of IoT?
The importance of IoT is its influence. The Industrial IoT goes beyond the simple exchange of data by connecting devices, systems and people in intelligent, real-world applications to enable environments such as automated factories, smart cities and connected healthcare.
The Industrial IoT is defined as the automated interaction between smart devices and systems, exchanging data to an offsite or cloud-based solution for meaningful, time-sensitive analytics using components with very low energy consumption, that are simple to install and based on industry standards. Traditional embedded systems are at the heart of this phenomenon, having evolved from standalone systems to become a network of connected devices and systems.
