The adjective “smart” is no longer merely an adverb. It is now a catch-all phrase for anything that improves the performance of a multi-device ecosystem. Making our daily tasks easier, increasing the speed with which information flows, and allowing us to do things in seconds or even microseconds that we could not do before.
Smart cities,smart factories, and smart buildings are examples of Internet of Things hardware and software solutions. It’s all based on wireless technologies. What exactly does the term “Smart” mean in Smart everything?
When you ask different stakeholders what Smart Everything means to them, their answers will vary depending on their point of view.
