IoT Webinar_HeaderThe Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the way we interact with the world by embedding intelligence into everyday objects and enabling seamless communication between devices. Our Landis+Gyr webinar discussed key aspects of IoT, including its definition, communication methods, typical use cases, and Landis+Gyr's contributions to this transformative field.

What is IoT?

IoT refers to a network of physical objects from home appliances to industrial machines, embedded with sensors, software and other technologies to connect and share data with other devices and systems over the Internet. This concept, which evolved from early experiments such as the sensor-equipped vending machine at Carnegie Mellon University, has evolved into various applications, all aimed at improving efficiency, productivity and convenience.

How do IoT devices communicate?

IoT devices communicate using different protocols across different layers:

  1. Physical/Data Link Layer: This defines how communication signals propagate over shared media, typically using wireless technology.
  2. Network/Internet layer: This layer provides IoT devices with unique addresses, enabling individual identification and communication.
  3. Application layer: Facilitates data exchange and command execution between devices and cloud applications through predefined communication patterns.
  4. Data Model/Application Profile: Ensures devices can interoperably identify and access other devices' data, similar to people using a common language.

Typical use cases of IoT

IoT applications span different domains and offer numerous benefits:

  1. Smart Homes: Devices such as temperature sensors and intelligent household appliances optimize energy consumption and increase security.
  2. Energy management: Smart meters and renewable energy sources balance production and consumption, ensuring efficient energy use.
  3. Intelligent vehicles: Enable advanced driver assistance systems and pave the way for autonomous driving.
