FIRST: Personal things, Things like health monitors, wearable devices, health care and human condition monitoring for personal health improvements.
Second: Things around us to improve quality of life and convenience like Things around smart home, transportation, retail, smart cities helps people to accomplish more for less effort.
Third: Things around systems, plants, production facilities manufacture goods and products consumed or used by us. This is the biggest pie of IOT with applications like smart manufacturing of process, engineering and production lines, Utilities Management systems, MES, Manufacturing Intelligence and discrete systems integration.
