The Internet of Things has become a key concept for linking uniquely identifiable things to their virtual representations in the Internet
The book shows current research developments and covers architectural and technical components as well as user-perspectives and pilots towards commercial use
The book intends to excite researchers, practitioners and end-users alike to take part in the development and deployment of the Internet of Things, which may prove to be a disruptive technology that will change our business, private and social life
Many of the initial developments towards the Internet of Things have focused on the combination of Auto-ID and networked infrastructures in business-to-business logistics and product lifecycle applications. However, the Internet of Things is more than a business tool for managing business processes more efficiently and more effectively – it will also enable a more convenient way of life.
Since the term "Internet of Things" first came to attention when the Auto-ID Center launched their initial vision for the EPC network for automatically identifying and tracing the flow of goods within supply-chains, increasing numbers of researchers and practitioners have further developed this vision.
The authors in this book provide a research perspective on current and future developments in the Internet of Things. The different chapters cover a broad range of topics from system design aspects and core architectural approaches to end-user participation, business perspectives and applications.
