How it Works: Internet of Things

The internet of things is changing much about the world we live in. From the way we drive to how we make purchases and even how we get energy for our homes. Sophisticated sensors and chips are embedded in the physical things that surround us, each transmitting valuable data that lets us better understand how these things work together. But how exactly do all these devices share such large quantities of data and how do we put that information to work? Whether we’re improving the production of a factory giving city residents real-time updates on where to park or monitoring our personal health? It’s the common Internet of Things platform that brings this diverse information together and provides a common language for our devices and apps to communicate with each other.
