BCIS 1405 – Case Study 1

Internet of Things (IoT)

Can you imagine an era when all objects and devices could be controlled over the internet?

“Internet of Things” describes this phenomenon. Everyday devices such as environmental sensors, garage doors openers, electrical switches, irrigation systems, utility meters, wearable devices, cars etc. could connect and communicate on the same platform via the Internet. We already have some of these connections today, and it is believed that tens of billions of devices will be connected to the Internet of Things by the end of the decade.

One application of IoT is the Smart Home system which keeps track of connected devices such as your sound system, heating & cooling system, mobile phone, car, wrist watch, etc. The system is designed such that it knows when you are approaching home, and as a result, the system automatically regulates the air-conditioning in your home based on your temperature and unlocks the door for you upon arrival.
