Glossary: Internet of Things (IoT)
The internet of things describes the interlinking of so-called smart/intelligent items/products. Smart products are products which in addition to physical components (e.g. a motor) also contain intelligent components (e.g. sensors, processors, software systems or data storage) as well as components which allow a linking, i.e. a data exchange, of the product with one or more other smart products or generally IT systems.
