Quiz Of The Week: The Internet Of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the biggest trends in technology and has the potential to transform the lives of both consumers and businesses as even the most mundane of everyday objects becomes connected.

Sensors and connected systems will make factories more efficient and open up new markets, while local governance could be changed forever with smart traffic systems, refuse collections and other services creating smart cities and even smart countries.

At home, the IoT will change home entertainment, help households save money with smart metres that control energy use and there are even apps that can connect your fridge to the Internet.
