One of the key metrics for measuring how fast a computer performs is through floating-point operations (i.e., any mathematical operation on two decimal numbers, such as +, -, *, /) per second. You would be amazed if you were to compare the Apollo 11 Guidance Computer with today’s iPhone 12’s 16-core Apple Neural Engine.
Considered the first Internet of Things (IoT) device, the toaster John Romkey created could be turned on and off over the Internet during the October ’89 INTEROP conference! Since then, more people have begun to use IoT devices. Simply put, IoT connects devices with the Internet, from things as simple as smart light bulbs and coffee makers to things as complicated as robots and drones.
Cars field more than 100 sesors. All these sensors turn our automobiles into mobile Internet of Things (IoT) devices. With on-board computers providing a vast number of functions, including mobile communication and entertainment systems, most cars today can also perform limited auto-piloting, communicate with nearby cars, and transmit sensor data over the internet. All of these activities are made possible because of increasing deployment of 5G.
