Internet of Things (IoT)


Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology having potential to penetrate every aspect of our live. Everything around us is going smart and intelligent. Internet of Things (IoT) is essentially a seamless connected network of embedded objects/devices, with identifiers, in which M2M communication without any human intervention is possible using standard and interoperable communication protocols.  The Internet of things has evolved due to the convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems. Traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation (including home and building automation), and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things. On Indian context, the various initiatives proposed to be taken under the Smart City concept and the Digital India Program to setup Digital Infrastructure in the country would help boost the IoT industry.

IoT Policy:

The Internet of Things (IoT) fed by sensors soon to number in the trillions,  working  with  intelligent  systems  in  the  billions,  and  involving  millions  of applications,  the  Internet  of  Things  will  drive new  consumer  and  business  behavior that  will  demand  increasingly  intelligent  industry solutions,  which,  in  turn,  will  drive trillions of dollars in opportunity for IT industry and even more for the companies that take advantage of the IoT. The  number  of  Internet-connected  devices  (12.5  billion)  surpassed  the  number  of human  beings  (7  billion)  on  the  planet  in  2011,  and  by  2020,  Internet-connected devices are expected to number between 26 billion and 50 billion globally.


In 1998, the real IoT was touched by Mark Weiser, who developed a water fountain that was amazing and delightful to everyone who saw it. It rose and fell respectively according to the pricing trends and the volume of stock on the NYSE. But the actual term “Internet of Things” was coined by Kevin Ashton in 1999 during his work at Procter&Gamble. At that point, he viewed radio-frequency identification (RFID) as essential to the Internet of things. Because the internet was the new trend in 1999 and because it somehow made sense, he called his presentation “Internet of Things”.

 Significance of IoT in India:

Zinnov, a leading global management and strategy consulting firm, released the findings from its latest study titled, "India - Emerging Hotbed of IoT Opportunities". Zinnov estimated that the IoT investments in India were close to USD 5 Billion in 2019, and are expected to triple to touch ~USD 15 Billion by 2021 across both technology products and services components.
In 2015, the Government of India had formulated a Draft IoT Policy with a vision to develop connected and smart IoT based system for our country's economy, society, environment and global needs. This Policy launched a Smart City project, with a plan of developing 100 smart cities in the country, by allocating INR 7,060 crores for the same. In continuation of this endeavor, the launch of the Digital India Program aims to transform the Indian society into a digitally empowered society and boost the IoT industry. The proposed smart cities shall consist of smart homes, smart parking, smart phone detection, smart transportation, smart roads and smart lighting.
MeitY has approved Rs 436.87 Crore for implementation of the Project Titled FutureSkill PRIME which aims to create an ecosystem  reskilling/upskilling ecosystem in  ten emerging and futuristic technologies including IoT. NIELIT Aurangabad has been approved as Co-lead resource centre in IoT.
