Abstract:With the machine era, where computers or computing devices were considered to provide artificial intelligence; human beings could interact with each other very efficiently from anywhere and at any point of time via web media called as ‘Internet’. Thus, human interaction with machines is becoming so prevalent that any and every machine (‘Things’) will be required to be connected with each other via web so as to provide more such intelligence. Internet of Things (IoT) has been recognized as part of future internet and ubiquitous computing. On the other hand, Physics being a study of Matter, Energy and interaction between them;it’s applied in every sphere of human activity. This article provides the significance of Physics for IoT, as it (later) allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely using Sensors and Actuators.While, a Sensor is a device (made up of various semiconductors), that converts real world data (Analog) into data that a computer can understand using ADC (Analog to Digital converter); an Actuator is a component of a machine (making up for instrumentation) that is responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. Let us make an attempt to understand about role of Physics for IoT.
