Internet of Things: Technologies, Applications, and Implementations

The interaction between objects like wearable electronics, home appliances, transportation means, energy grids, manufacturing machinery and healthcare facilities is becoming a reality. This model is known as the Internet of Things (IoT), in which things refer to intelligent objects with some processing power and storage capacity, and has unique identifiers which connect them to the Internet. IoT represents a new generation of ubiquitous computing that can be found anywhere and everywhere. Gartner expects that by 2020, 26 billion objects will be connected to the Internet, and the revenues of IoT products and services will exceed $300 billion. It is likely for the IoT to be applied to a wide range of fields, such as retail, logistics, pharmaceutical, healthcare, transportation, housing, urban planning, infrastructure monitoring, and agriculture. These applications alongside implementation details and challenges should also be explored for successful mainstream adoption.

The main goal of this project is to encourage both researchers and practitioners to share and exchange their experiences and recent studies between academia and industry. The overall objectives are:
- To analyze and present the state-of-the-art of the IoT and related technologies and methodologies.
- To highlight and discuss the recent development and emerging trends in the IoT.
- To propose new models, practical solutions and technological advances of the IoT.
- To present case studies and innovative applications of the IoT.
- To address implementation issues and challenges.

Target Audience
This book will attract graduate students, researchers, academicians, and professionals that are interested in exploring and implementing the IoT and related technologies.

- Standards and Interoperability in IoT
- Sustainability & Green IoT
- Implementation Issues (Tools and Platforms, Architecture, Governance, and Management Strategies)
- Required Regulations and Legislation for IoT
- Business aspects, models and opportunities of IoT
- Addressing, Naming, Brokering, and Discovery of Things
- Data Management (processing, storage, compression, encryption, storage, data models, analytics, and visualization, security and privacy)
- Governance and General Management Aspects of IoT
- Social Implications of IoT
- IoT Enabling Technologies (WBAN/BAN/BSN, WSN, RFID, NFC, etc.)
- Cloud Computing for IoT
- Fog Computing in IoT
- SDN, LTE, Narrowband, etc., for IoT
- IoT and Big Data
