IoT connects objects to each other and to the Internet, allowing them to transmit their stored data to other platforms and also receive commands from these platforms. This concept, called the internet of things, is expected to affect all industrial sectors in the near future.
Basic components of IOT; sensor, gateway, cloud and mobile application. Sensors are devices that can measure light, temperature, humidity and pressure. Measurement result ,outputs, are transmitted over a network to the gateway and receive commands. These data are kept in the cloud, in a database on the Internet. Finally, the connection with the object is controlled through an interface.
