What is the IoT?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a dynamic network of physical objects or "things" that are embedded with sensors, software, and advanced technologies, allowing them to collect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet. These objects can be everyday items such as appliances, vehicles, medical devices, industrial machines, and even clothing.
