“I don’t think the progression of the Internet of Things is going to be linear. We’re going to see more and more Internet of Things, applications, more and more Internet of Things value every year. So, although we’re 17 years in, we’re not 17% done yet. And I think what we’re going to see is increasing integration of network sensors into things like manufacturing processes, robotics, transportation systems.” Kevin Ashton– Coined the term “Internet of Things.”
Kevin Ashton (born 1968) is a British technology pioneer who cofounded the Auto-ID Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which created a global standard system for RFID and other sensors. He is known for coining the term “the Internet of Things” to describe a system where the Internet is connected to the physical world via ubiquitous sensors.
