The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term coined by Kevin Ashton, a British technology pioneer working on radio-frequency identification (RFID) who conceived a system of ubiquitous sensors connecting the physical world to the Internet. Although things, Internet, and connectivity are the three core components of IoT, the value is in closing the gap between the physical and digital world in self-reinforcing and self-improving systems.
If you knew the state of every thing in the world, and could reason on top of the data: What problems would you solve?
To help you answer that question and extract the value from your connected devices, AWS has built IoT specific services, such AWS Greengrass, and AWS IoT Core. They help you collect and send data to the cloud, make it easy to load and analyze that information, and provide the ability to manage your devices, so you can focus on developing applications that fit your needs.
