This article determines the overview of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the multifaceted applications of the IoT. The IoT is made up of hardware and software technologies. The IoT describes a world in which everyday objects are connected to a network so that data can be shared. The IoT refers to the networking of physical objects through the use of embedded sensors, actuators, and other devices that can collect and transmit information about the objects. The data amassed from these devices can be analyzed to optimize products, services, and operations. For the IoT to flourish, interoperability must apply across all parts of the system, including the transmission networks and the data being transmitted. The IoT enables the multifaceted applications ranging from the micro to the macro, and from the trivial to the critical perspectives.

Information Security at Large Public Displays
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a generic term, describing systems which use radio or electromagnetic propagation for contactless identification of tagged objects. RFID systems usually consist of three components: a transponder containing information, an antenna, used to transmit the signals between the reader and the transponder, and a reader that receives data from a transponder and passes the data to a host system for processing.

Widely Usable User Interfaces on Mobile Devices with RFID
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method based on storing and remotely retrieving data using small and cheap devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag is an object that can be attached to objects, products, or persons to identification using radio waves. Passive tags (with a few centimeter range of sensitivity) require no internal power source, whereas active tags (with more long range of sensitivity, 100 meters) require a power source.

RFID as the Critical Factor for Superior Healthcare Delivery
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method which uses devices called RFID tags. An RFID system consists of three components: (1) a tag, (2) a reader, and (3) a computer network. The RFID tag consists of a microchip that has some specific data that enables easy identification and an antenna, which is used to enable transmission of data. The second component of a RFID system is a reader and the reader uses radio waves to read the tag, and transmit data a computer system (i.e., the third component of a RFID system).
