Class work: SEARCH for “INTERNET OF THINGS”

1. What am I looking for?

2. What tools are available?

3. How can I search this tool like an expert?

internet of things.  what is it? I typed in a Google search “Internet of Things” to look what returns to the query: Wiki was at the top of the list defining the phrase “Internet of Things” – a network of objects that are related in one way or another.  Physical objects with URL.

OK, where do I go from here?  further I read wiki to find out what does that really mean?  so as I understand it, the internet of things is where everything is tagged with RFIDs (radio tags) that transmit particular information about that object within a small radius area.  The tag is electronically scanned and the item (or even person) is located/defined/inventoried, etc.

Vocabulary – defining a term

What does the term mean – looking for the database of articles and find synonyms.

Think about search strategies, when searching for things, it is the key to make your search beyond what is described as easy to find.
