Important IoT TECHNOLOGIES

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

  • An RFID chip holds information about the “thing”
  • An RFID chip is attached and transfers data to the reader.
  • The antenna on the RFID module is used to receive energy that is used to operate the RFID device and transmit information back to the reader.
  • RFID enables efficient management, tracking and monitoring processes and logistics and supply chain applications.

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)

  • Efficient, low-cost, low-power devices for use in remote sensing applications.
  • Low-power integrated circuits and wireless communications.
  • A large number of intelligent sensors collect raw data, and create valuable services by processing, analyzing, and spreading data.
  • Challenges are related to limited processing capability and storage, and sensor data sharing for multiple device/system cooperation.

IoT Cloud Computing Support

  • For Advanced IoT services, IoT networks may need to collect, analyze and process segments of raw data and turn it in into operational control information.
  • Advanced IoT services will need the support of cloud computing.
  • Numerous IoT connections will be made to various devices and sensors.
  • Many IoT devices will not have a PC or smartphone level of sufficient data processing capability or interoperability functionality.

Cloud Computing

  • IoT applications will need support from a reliable, fast, and agile computing platform.
  • IoT devices can overcome a lack of software, firmware, memory storage, hardware and data processing capability using cloud computing.
  • The following are cloud service models:
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
