Familiar devices and objects are evolving to become connected and smarter by leveraging the IoT (Internet of Things) and are designed to help our lives become easier, better and safer. A Smart Thing is an object can sense, monitor and react to its environment, securely processing the information it collects, protected from threats and intrusions, then communicating the results to other smart objects while managing its power consumption.
Advanced semiconductor technologies, low-cost, low-power embedded microcontrollers and innovative sensors are enabling large-scale deployment of new Smart Things that are powerful, compact, energy-efficient, secure and affordable.
ST today has all the ingredients to develop these new Smart Things thanks to our complete product portfolio that includes sensors and actuators, microcontrollers, power and analog components, and connectivity products.
ST’s ecosystem of modular hardware and software building blocks provides the simplest way to develop Smart Things.
