The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of things and consists of sensors, software, and other tools. These systems can collect and analyze data without human intervention. The term IoT, coined by Kevin Ashton , began to be used in the 2000s and has become a key part of many industries today.
This detailed list of Internet of Things (IoT) statistics is created from trusted sources to provide you with a better understanding of current applications and their future.
