The Internet of Things, What is it?

According to Wikipedia; the term Internet of Things was proposed by Kevin Ashton in 1999, a British technology pioneer who cofounded the Auto-ID Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which created a global standard system for RFID (Radio-frequency identification) and other sensors.

This will result in widespread information networks which will create new business models, improve existing business processes, and potentially reduce costs and risks.
