What is the impact of ubiquitous sensors and how does informatics help to analyze the collected data

Minoli (2013, p. 1) stated that internet of things is the concept of computing that allows networks connectivity that supports sending and receiving of data. Among the key features of the IoT is the growth in cloud computing. Improved connectivity of machines and devices is a feature of IoT. The connection of the internet to the objects enables one to identify the very objects through other devices that can link to the internet. Internet of Things (IoT) has three important functions.
The first importance of Internet of Things is that an object can represent itself digitally and become something greater than its normal size. The second significance of the Internet of things is that it makes objects to an individual connect to the surrounding objects. In addition, it steers database date away from being it making the object relate to the individual personally.
Research by Tirrenia International Workshop and Giusto (2010, p. 1) reveals that one of the applications of sensor in Internet of things is on the use of Radius Frequency Identification (RFID).With the use of RFID, small electronic devices consisting of a small chip and an antenna. The chip can hold up to 2,000 bytes or even less. RFID devices also serve similar functions to the bar codes or the magnetic strips on the back of a credit card or even ATM card. RFID makes it provide the user with a unique identifier for the object. It, therefore, implies that wireless sensor is a companion of RFID. That is particularly in the view of deploying common Internet of things infrastructures of Radius Frequency Identification (RFID).
Another instance of Internet of Things is the use of Near Field Communication (NFC). NFC is a short range of wireless technologies requiring a distance of 4 centimeters or less than that in order to initiate the connection. NFC, therefore, gives a chance to have a small payload of data
