Internet of Things (IoT) is the future of every-“THING”. It can be defined as a network that allows things around us to interconnect and talk to each other. We live in a smart world. Things around us are smart-smart watch, smart T.V, smart mobile and more. The future of IOT is vast. We can experience it from the minute we wake up. A Forbes study predicts the combined markets of the Internet of Things to grow to about $520 Billion in 2021, more than double the $235 Billion spent in 2017. IoT devices are becoming a part of the mainstream electronics culture and people are adopting smart devices into their homes faster than ever. By 2020, it is estimated that there will be up to 21 billion connected devices to the internet. IoT devices will be a huge part of how we interact with basic everyday objects. To accomplish this, what does Industry Need? Specialists who can offer solutions based on IoT. This Specialization covers the development of IoT products and services—including devices for sensing, actuation, processing and communication.
