What is an IoT device?

Anything that has a sensor attached to it and can transmit data from one object to another or to people with the help of internet is known as an IoT device. The IoT devices include wireless sensors, software, actuators, computer devices and more. They are attached to a particular object that operates through the internet, enabling the transfer of data among objects or people automatically without human intervention.

For example, the IoT systems in your car identifies the traffic ahead and automatically sends out a message of your impending delay to the person you are about to meet. Even a pacemaker can be an IoT device that seamlessly communicates with other machines for a greater ease of life and convenience.

HCLTech’s IoT solutions are aligned to core areas of asset value chain, helping organizations accelerate time to market and optimize costs.
