The modern world of computing is fast growing with the requirements and possibilities increasing as more advances are made and new discoveries achieved. With aware systems, a network of connected devices keeps the entities that make up the system in touch and aware of each other. They are able to share information with one another and be able to send and receive all kinds of data from one another. The devices might be different in their capabilities and functions and will always have a similarity in their underlying architecture which makes it possible for them to interface with each other and share information using agreed on protocols.
The internet of things is one such example of connected devices and systems that are aware of other devices on the same system. It is made up of sensors and network devices which share information with one another and make the entire system aware of things such as temperatures and humidity at different portions of the network. A system that has been filled with sensors and connected to a simple computer can easily manage itself and take care of things such as temperature and humidity regulations with much ease, not to forget effectiveness.
With the internet of things, all the devices that are connected to the system is what makes the system aware of itself and as all these sensors pick up environmental information and share it with one another. The sensors are connected to the information system and are always aware of the particular measurement they are required to obtain information about. The awareness of the system comes from the variations in whatever is being measured and as this variable keeps changing and modifying with the changing environment, so does the reaction that the information system will have on the way it runs and operates.
Several connected devices on the same network will be very likely to pass information to one another and through the sharing of this information; the overall performance of the system will have been improved. The connection of these systems makes it possible for them to develop an awareness of one another as well as utilize the information that is passing through them more effectively. These connections are useful starting point for automated systems that can easily react to variations in the external factors and adapt as the environmental variables start to change.
In conclusion, the internet of things has been known to be one of the aware systems that take advantage of the connectivity in each of the devices that is within a network to form a self-awareness that is useful for activating the system as a whole. Awareness of the system also allows it to adjust itself according to the outside elements and with this in mind; the connectivity is able to keep the system working in unison with all of its components. Smart homes are a good example of such a connected and self-aware system and are known to be quite effective and responsible for good homes and comfortable living.
