In this paper, we look up to highlight the concept of Internet of Things (IOT) in general, and its application areas in our life. The expression “Internet of Things” (IOT), coined back in 1999 by Kevin Ashton, the British technology pioneer who cofounded the Auto-ID Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Internet of Things (IOT) has gained significant momentum as a technology to connect physical objects to the Internet and to facilitate machine-to-human and machine-to-machine communications. We seek to describe the importance and application areas of Global Positioning system (GPS) in our life. GPS has its usefulness in military, weather conditions, vehicle location, farms, mapping and many other areas. By the coordination of internet of things (IOT) and global positioning system (GPS) technologies we can make our life easier and these two technologies save the time and money in our business.
