The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the network of interconnected devices that communicate 

These devices, often embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies, collect and exchange data to perform specific functions or tasks. 

Connected Devices: IoT encompasses a wide range of devices, such as smartphones, wearables (like fitness trackers), smart home appliances  

 

Communication: IoT devices use various communication protocols (like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, or cellular networks) to connect and interact 

Data Collection and Sharing: IoT devices collect data from their surroundings through sensors (temperature, motion, light, etc.) and share this data either locally or over the internet. 

Automation and Control: IoT enables automation and remote control of devices and systems.  

Challenges: IoT presents challenges such as security and privacy concerns (due to data collection and transmission), interoperability.
