What are IoT and Embedded Systems?
IoT (Internet of Things) and embedded systems are two fields that are closely related and are rapidly growing in importance in today’s digital age. IoT refers to the interconnection of various devices and objects via the internet, allowing them to communicate and exchange data with each other. Embedded systems, on the other hand, are computer systems that are integrated into various devices and appliances to perform specific tasks.
IoT and embedded systems have numerous applications in various domains, including healthcare, transportation, energy, and smart homes. In healthcare, IoT and embedded systems are used to monitor patient health and vital signs remotely, enabling medical professionals to provide timely and efficient care. In transportation, IoT and embedded systems are used to improve safety and efficiency by monitoring traffic and controlling vehicles. In smart homes, IoT and embedded systems are used to control various appliances and devices, such as lighting, heating, and security systems.
