citizens can find free available parking slots and also sensors can detect any
installation issues in the electricity system.
How does it work in the real world?
An IoT system consists of web smart devices like processors, sensors, and
basic communication hardware. These elements act on the data collected by the sensor by Machine Learning and send the data as they acquire from their environments.
Many IoT devices can be controlled through an App on Smartphone
