are pieces of equipment that work with objects that can store and upload data. The process of taking items that we would not normally think of as being “connected devices,” such as toasters, thermostats, or vehicles, and adding the ability to communicate with other devices and store data is called the Internet of Things.
Sometimes referred to as smart sensors, IoT sensors have a wide number of applications across fields. A smart sensor can be very useful in a warehouse or storage facility where thousands of items need to be tracked and logistics can get difficult.
Using a smart sensor on a package gives warehouse operators the ability to attach data to object, which solves many problems for tracking, keeping inventory, or shipping to customers. A sensor can also detect things like humidity and temperature and can be used as alarms when the atmosphere is not ideal for the unit’s storage.
