With IoT, virtually any object, person or even animal can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. For instance, a patient with an implanted heart monitor, a farm animal with a biochip transponder and an automobile with built-in sensors are all achievable thanks to IoT. Eaton's Electrical Sector and Hydraulics Group engineers are actively looking at integrating the IoT across a growing number of products. By capturing data that exists within components and systems and making it available, these products will be able to provide actionable knowledge to improve performance.

Hardware
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.

Internet Protocol (IP) for Smart Object Alliance (IPSO Alliance)
Internet Protocol (IP) for Smart Object Alliance (IPSO Alliance)
Our strategy is to embrace the promise of the Internet of Things, Intelligent Autonomous Machines, and the creation of a Data Marketplace. We desire to create a consensus-based Alliance very focused on Smart Object Model definition for the distribution and alignment with existing formal and relevant standards development organizations. We do not want to create a standalone definition or one-off standard, but rather our work effort is to create a unified open viewpoint for large scale adoption.There is a market need and urgency for industry leadership in the definition of the next generation of Smart Objects and the IPSO Alliance is up to the challenge. No doubt, it is critical in this new era that we continue to drive towards openness and interoperability of Smart Objects, but also we need to drive towards a common understanding and method of identity and privacy.The IPSO Alliance is updating its charter to include new generation Smart Object definitions that contain a number of additional attributes for example: Immutable Identity Model, Protocol Model, Physical Model, Data Model, Resource Model, Service Model and Autonomous Model. These attributes, combined together with references to industry standards, define the next generation IPSO Smart Object Framework.The IPSO Alliance continues to a be focused special interest group (SIG) comprised of a diverse international membership of companies and non-profit organizations focused on developing the definition of this Smart Object Framework with an emphasis on the aspects of Identity and Privacy.
