What is IoT?

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers  (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
The sensors can perceive their environment, communicate with it and in that way create a situational behavior and contribute to create smart, attractive and helpful environments, goods and services. 

The Internet of Things is an important part of the digitalization of our society and economy, where both goods and people are connected and can communicate and report their status and environment. The Internet of Things can also favor the Swedish economy and have an important role in solving many of the great societal challenges which the growing urbanization leads to.rI
