Wind turbine controlWhat is the Internet of Things (IoT) and what is it good for?

Is anybody actually using it yet for real applications?

Here's a page of resources to answer some of your questions: The Internet of Things.

  • See how system integrator SCADA Solutions brought 30-year-old wind turbines online, increasing profits and avoiding penalties. 
  • Add your application to the list of just a few ways engineers are using the IoT.
  • SSL? HTTPS? API? Let the IoT Glossary answer your questions about IoT terms you hear.
  • Read the IoT Primer and the new white paper, the Edge Computing Primer. Both introduce ways you can access data from existing sensors and devices in the field.
  • Watch a video about how embedded systems differ from the IoT.
  • Learn the difference between fog computing and edge computing. 

We've talked about some of these resources before, but there's new material here as well. Let us know what other resources you'd like to have for learning about and using IoT technologies.

See the Internet of Things page.
