The Internet of Things (IoT) is centered around the concept of connecting our physical "things" to the internet so that we can monitor and manage those "things" more effectively.
If you work in a lab, an example of this might be connecting your freezers (the things) to a cloud-based platform (the internet) so that you can receive notifications on your phone when there is a dangerous rise in temperature. Sounds pretty useful, right? You can learn more about that specific application here.
But today we're highlighting a key technology behind the advancement of IoT - sensors. Check out the infographic below to see how sensors let us connect to our devices like never before.
