At present IoT is immensely a descriptive term of a vision that everything should be connected to the internet. IoT applications have been widely used in several fields of social living such as healthcare and social products, industrial automation and energy. In this scenario, there are more than 14 billion interconnected digital and electronic devices in operation worldwide, the equivalent of almost two devices for every human being on earth. The IoT connects different non-living objects through the internet and enables them to share information with their community network to automate processes for human beings and makes their lives convenient. Subsequently, objects are being amalgamated with internet connectivity and powerful data analysis capabilities that promise to change the way we work and live. The Internet is a worldwide system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users globally. The most vital characteristics of IoT include connectivity, active engagement, connectivity, sensors, artificial intelligence, and small device use. This paper provides an overview of existing Internet of Things (IoT), technical details, and applications in this new emerging area as well as we are thoroughly analyzing the layer about the IoT. However, this manuscript will give a better understanding for the new researchers, who want to do research in this field of Internet of Things.
