The second is real-time, through the sensing device embedded in or attached to the item or external information acquisition technology, the status of the item can be reflected every very short time, including static or sports, safe or dangerous, good or rotten, can be reflected in real time. Come out, such as airport perimeter, cultural relics monitoring, bridge monitoring, environmental monitoring, food traceability, etc.

IoT development stage and structure

According to market development, the Internet of Things can be divided into four stages: concept, research and development, experiment and application. According to the application development, the development of the Internet of Things can be divided into islands, closed, limited objects and unlimited objects.

In the island stage, the Internet of Things is applied in a small area within a certain industry or field. The industry has not yet formed uniform standards and technical specifications. In the closed stage, Internet of Things applications in a certain industry or field have formed unified industry standards and technical specifications. In the limited material phase, cross-industry unified standards and technical specifications across a limited number of industries or areas of IoT applications; in the infinite IoT phase, including most industries or areas of IoT applications, adopting unified standards And technical specifications. The Internet of Things is divided into three layers in the architecture, namely the sensing layer, the transport layer and the application layer.

The perception layer is the basic physical network for the Internet of Things to perceive, identify and collect information in the real world. The main function is to identify objects and collect information, and provide massive and accurate data information support for subsequent information processing and corresponding decision-making behavior.

The transport layer is an important network cluster that realizes seamless connection and comprehensive coverage of the Internet of Things. It is responsible for the high-speed, low-loss, secure and reliable transmission of the data information of the sensing layer and the collected data to the application layer. Good resistance to external interference and illegal intrusion.

The application layer realizes the combination of IoT technology and application, and finally forms a collection of IoT applications involving people's daily learning, work and life aspects.
