THE INTERNET OF THINGS

THE INTERNET OF THINGS
The Internet of things, stylised Internet of Things (IoT), is the internetworking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as "connected devices" and "smart devices"), buildings and other items - embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.

The Internet of Things describes a world in which everyday objects are connected to a network so that data can be shared. But it is really as much about people as the inanimate objects. Many millions of us already carry "smart" phones in the UK but a phone is not smart. It helps its user to make smarter decisions. (UK Government Office for Science)

The Internet of Things UK (IoT UK) is powered by the UK Digital Catapult and the Future Cities Catapult. IoT UK is a programme of activities that seeks to advance the UK’s global leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT) and increase the adoption of high quality IoT technologies and services throughout businesses and the public sector.

IoT UK will maximise the impact of the Government’s IoT investment programme, by coordinating and engaging with the organisations which will be appointed to deliver the recently announced public funding for a city demonstrator, a research hub focussed on security and trust, as well as health and care test beds.

IoT UK is for business, academia and innovators who are already advancing IoT in their fields, or have a desire to know more about it.

THE INTERNET OF THINGS: what is it?
The Internet of Things is automatic ‘smart’ communication between objects, through the internet. Market projections suggest the industry will comprise 26 billion devices by 2020, rising to a trillion by 2025.

It’s predicted to become a £500 billion global technology market by 2019, supporting an even more extensive market for products and services.

Innovate UK will spend £120 million over the next 4 years to support innovative business projects in the digital economy area - read Digital Economy Strategy 2015 to 2018
