The Internet of Things (IOT for short) is a communication network where physical objects are linked to each other or to larger systems. It is envisaged that objects can be marked up with a unique identifier and can work together over the Internet infrastructure, creating larger values than the sum of small parts on this number.

The American Federal Trade Commission defines the Internet as “the ability of objects in our daily use to connect and receive data over the Internet.”

In terms of the Internet of objects, the concept of object has a very broad meaning. Any kind of monitoring devices, sensors, biochips or access devices are considered objects. Requirements for a device to be considered “smart” and qualified as an object: It has a unique id, is connectable, and has a sensor. At this point, the intelligent object becomes accessible and controllable from anywhere in the world.

The applications of the objects are also used for the purpose of combining the data of many sensors with the values ​​of the sensors besides being accessible individually. It is ensured that high level sensor data flowing from the physical environment is transmitted to the operators or related persons as information after the evaluations made or processed with the help of the given systems. From this point of view, it is seen that the Internet of Objects is interwoven with the big data concepts and applications.
