In thinking about the architecture and functioning of the IoT, I came to represent it as a nervous system. Commands and data flow through the architecture of IoT while computations are performed at the appropriate location in the system. The end terminal points of IoT, just like in the human nervous system function as the interface with the outside world. MEMS are indispensable to the proper functioning of the interface, yet, as focused as we are on electronics, we seldom give prominence to MEMS when the IoT is discussed in EDA circles.
