The Internet of Things refers to interconnecting uniquely identifiable embedded, portable and wearable computing devices. This advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services covers a variety of protocols, domains and applications. Analysts expect this interconnection to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid. The "Things" referred to include home monitoring systems (thermostats, security) and a wide variety of devices, such as heart monitoring implants, biochip transponders on farm animals and automobiles with built-in sensors.
