<< Ubiquitous sensing enabled by Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies cuts across many areas of modern day living. This offers the ability to measure, infer and understand environmental indicators, from delicate ecologies and natural resources to urban environments. The proliferation of these devices in a communicating–actuating network creates the Internet of Things (IoT), wherein sensors and actuators blend seamlessly with the environment around us, and the information is shared across platforms in order to develop a common operating picture (COP) >>

interessante qui l'immagine "the information is shared across platforms in order to develop a common operating picture (COP)"; in pratica con la transizione gia' in atto ( cfr: << as we move from www (static pages web) to web2 (social networking web) to web3 (ubiquitous computing web) >>) il web puo' definitivamente "uscire dalle reti virtuali" per sconfinare e diffondersi (registrare, controllare, in tempo reale, in modalita' locale o altrove ...) all'intorno (e anche all'interno) di qualsivoglia sistema biologico ...
