The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term used to describe the interrelationships between everyday things. The IoE is a broader term that encompasses the IoT and four key elements—people, processes, data, and things.
Although the two terms look similar, there is a big difference between the IoT and the IoE. The IoT is just a small part of all the IoE. With the advancement of technology, the definition of the IoT is becoming more and more blurred, and will eventually be replaced by the IoE.
The IoT includes everyday items that are connected to each other. It includes hardware such as smartwatches, laptops, computers, and a variety of smart devices, such as smart speakers, home assistants, smart thermostats, etc., which connect to the Internet or a local network and exchange data with each other. With the addition of artificial intelligence, mobile Internet and smart data, the IoT is slowly turning into the IoE. More and more devices are connected to the Internet, driving the development of the IoT. With the emergence of new technologies and new objects combined with network technologies, the IoT will continue to evolve.
It is defined as the IoE as "a smart connection between people, processes, data, and things." It is a superset of the Internet of Things because it includes everything in the Internet of Things and four key elements.
The four key elements of the IoE are:
▲People: People are terminal nodes connected via the Internet
▲Process: The process ensures that the correct information is sent to the right person (or thing)
▲Data: Analyze raw data to help enhance the solution's capabilities
▲Things: Things are devices that embed sensors to generate data
The IoE relies on machine-to-machine communication between the IoT to describe a more complex system. It also includes people and processes. The Internet for everything is based on the idea that in the future, everything will be connected to each other and the network connection will not be limited to a few devices. (From the IoT) The machine will become smarter by accessing data and expanding network opportunities. Practical IoT applications include elements such as sensors and interfaces for remote devices, as well as smarter, better-connected mobile devices, industrial machine learning systems, and other types of hardware that have recently been automated.
