What is the Internet of Things?

Imagine if some of the world’s biggest problems - like hunger or pollution - could be solved by the connection of trillions of sensors within an Internet of Things. Sound like science fiction? It’s not. The emergence of smart sensors that support data and unprecedented connectivity is advancing a new generation of technology. That connection is refered to as the Internet of Things or IoT

Orlando is on the forefront of smart sensor technology with the construction of the International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research (ICAMR), the world’s first smart sensor consortium. Located in Osceola County, this facility will provide more than 100,000 square-feet of lab and office space to research advanced manufacturing techniques for emerging technologies and next-generation smart sensors that connect everyday devices to the loT.

Take a look at how Jason Handley, Director of Smart Grid Technology and Operations for Duke Energy, explains other everyday uses of technology that promises a world where everything is connected, energy is efficient and all is driven by the knowledge gained through the use of advanced analytics.
