The Internet of Things

"Internet of Things has revolutionized all aspects of our lives – at work, in education, health, transportation, and the home. And the demand for connected technology is only increasing. Industry and consumers want IoT to be faster, safer, and more robust. Springer continues to bring together the best research in the field for anyone who wants to get ahead in this new frontier of engineering… and to help discover the next frontier." - Springer Senior Editor, Mary James

We've brought together the best research in the field for anyone who wants to get ahead in this new frontier of engineering.

What is the Internet of Things?

We reached out to Prof. Antonio Liotta, Director of Data Science Centre, Chair of Data Science at the University of Derby, UK and Editor-in-Chief of the Springer book series, Internet of Things. Read on to ask what he sees in the future of the IoT:

AnthonyLiotta © SpringerSpringer: What is the Internet of Things? 

Antonio: The Internet of Things is the next Internet. It extends the reach of connectivity much beyond computers and phones to virtually any object that has a chip and a radio interface. IoT gathers data from electronic sensors (such as those embedded in cars, drones or wearable fitness gadgets). It makes it possible to orchestrate multiple systems that affect each other (such as traffic and energy management in a “smart” city) because, ... read the full article
