What is M2M or machine to machine?

Abbreviation for machine to machine, an expression that refers to the technology that allows two remote machines – a robot, a car, an industrial machine... – to exchange information or communicate in data form, as well as to perform actions in a completely autonomous manner, i.e. without human intervention.

It should not be confused with the IoT concept. M2M technology can be viewed as being a sub-set of the Internet of Things, given that the former provides the connectivity that makes the latter possible.
