[Reference Information] What is Internet of Small Thing (IoST)?

Internet of Small Things, is about all objects being able to send and receive data from the internet. IoST objects do not necessarily need a high cost, fast speed network or a constant power supply. In order to send the small quantities of data, only a battery with low power output is needed.
