Long held as the main restriction to the evolution of a more connected world, a lack of sensors has gradually been put right, with growing numbers of devices falling in line with the new world order.

Whether they be GPS, heating, moisture, pressure or speedometer sensors, these are the backbone of creating an interconnected world.

It could be argued that they are also premeditated. The thirst for IoT has led to an explosion in sensor prevalence, rather than the other way around.

Connectivity’s timeline, though, shows the opposite. From dial-up to broadband, landlines to smartphones, PAN to LAN, MAN and WAN, growing connection speeds have led to greater ideas.

Connectivity combined with sensors can then be evaluated, explained and decided on by people for whom this IoT world is shaped.
