Connected devices create increased wellbeing

The Internet of Things is a collective term for the development of equipping machines, vehicles, goods, domestic appliances, clothing and other things with integrated sensors and computers.
The area can create increased wellbeing through rationalisation and innovations in different industries. It is calculated that there will be 50 billion devices connected around the world by 2020.
