Every year, more and more smart speakers, smartphones, mobile devices, fitness trackers and other smart things are sold. No wonder! We are all fascinated by the many innovative features of these little voice-controlled assistants, digital wallets and health trackers that can make our lives more convenient.
I know people who never take off their smartwatch at all: In the morning, it gently wakes you up, you check your e-mails and news over a cup of coffee, you lock your apartment door with the watch when you leave, on the go you use it as contactless payment device to buy yourself a small breakfast, and then pay for your subway ticket with your watch. When you arrive at the office, the watch provides access to the office building, you pay your lunch in the canteen with it. Then it's off to the gym, where the watch tracks what sporting achievements have been made today. In between, telephone calls are made. And in the evening, the watch serves as a remote control for the TV before you go to bed and the watch checks the vital functions to ensure a restful sleep. And to think what could come next! I'm especially looking forward to when my smartwatch automatically turns on the espresso machine when I'm in a slump.
But what's behind this fascinating world of smart devices? How is it that my wristwatch can take my pulse, recommend great restaurants near me, and pay for my groceries? What makes my phone smart, and how is it that my smart speaker understands me so well?
Fact is: No IoT without Microelectronics.
