Internet of Things (IoT)

In the Internet of Things, IoT Intelligent "things" and/or elements and objects communicate with each other via a universal digital network.

Computer as individual devices increasingly disappear, and they are replaced by "intelligent things". They are networked with the internet, so that they communicate independently via the internet and thereby perform tasks for the owner.

Accordingly, it is mostly thanks to the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) as an intelligent localisation technique that objects can identify and to a certain degree control themselves already today. On the objects, specific information is stored as to what is to happen to them. This causes the products to communicate the next working steps to their material flow or production plant. The help of people is no longer necessary.
