Odia youngster’s book on ‘Internet of Things’ released
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging topic of technical, social and economic significance. Due to its growing demand and future prospect IoT has been introduced across all the leading technical universities of Odisha including Biju Patnaik University of Technology, Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT), SOA University and Utkal University this year.
To fulfill students’ academic requirements as well as to make the complexity of this future technology (IoT) look easy young Odia writer Sagar Pradhan has lately released his book titled “Internet of Things”. The book was published in the last week of October by Engineer’s Mind Publication.
The Internet of things is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enable these things to connect, collect and exchange data.
Telling about IoT writer of the book Sagar said, “Consumer products, durable goods, cars and trucks, industrial and utility components, sensors, and other everyday objects are being combined with Internet connectivity and powerful data analytic capabilities that promise to transform the way we work, live, and play. Projections for the impact of IoT on the Internet and economy are impressive, with some anticipating as many as 100 billion connected IoT devices and a global economic impact of more than $11 trillion by 2025. Besides, IoT can help in automation of traffic monitoring, transport and logistics tracking, environmental monitoring, smart farming, healthcare and energy conservation.”
An alumnus of BPUT, Pradhan is currently working as a leading engineer with an American Software firm based in Bengaluru. He has previously worked with Infosys Limited and Electronics Corporation of India Limited as a senior engineer for several years. He is also a member of International Association of Engineers & IAENG Society of Computer Scientists, Hong Kong. “Hope the book will help our students in learning this new technology,” he added.
