Internet of Things
The Internet of Things allows physical objects to connect with each other digitally. The objects are automatically identified via RFID or QR codes. Tiny integrable sensors or machine-sensing methods will ensure that almost all physical objects connect to each other in future.
The application potential ranges from self-optimizing production through to automatic fleet management. The impending telecommunications standard “5G” will give the Internet of Things a further boost in its development. “5G” enables complex traffic systems involving the autonomous integration of cars, as well as operations carried out by remote control. In this way, 200 billion global devices can be connected in future and controlled in real time.
