Multiplication of interactive information objects by means of adding sensors and other devices to material objects (i.e. “things”) with the ability to communicate with other objects thus transforming the physical world itself into a huge information and knowledge system.

This enables things/objects to recognise events and changes in their surroundings and act and react in an appropriate way, without human intervention.
