Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding a typical IoT device, part of Programming the Internet of Things with iOS.
- Now let's pull back the covers a little bit and look at what's inside of things. If you're wondering why we're spending so much time trying to understand the things before we try to connect to them with your iOS device, this will give you a little insight. By 2018, which is only like three years from now, according to Business Insider estimates, the number of Internet of Things devices will expand from 1.9 billion to 9 billion devices, which is roughly equal to the number of smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, wearable computers and PCs combined.
This will give you a little visual sense of what I'm talking about here. Recognize that that sort of turquoise section right there is going to be equal to tablets, smartphones, PCs, wearables, connected TVs, connected cars. The Things are going to dwarf all of the people that are on the internet. So let's take a look at what's inside a typical Internet of Things device. We need to understand about creating command and control, a way of being able to interact with the outside world, and interact with the sensors and effectors on the device.
We need to talk about how we can connect inputs to our device, how we can connect outputs to the device so the device can do something, how we connect via TCP/IP, and how we connect via Bluetooth. So let's examine each one of those in more detail.
