Internet of Things Applications aims to provide a broad overview of various topics of Internet of Things (IoT) from the research, innovation, and development priorities to enabling technologies, nanoelectronics, cyber physical systems, architecture, interoperability, and industrial applications. It is intended to be a standalone book in a series that covers the IoT activities of the Internet of Things European Research Cluster (IERC) from technology to international cooperation and the global "state of play.” The book builds on the ideas put forward by the IERC Strategic Research Agenda and presents global views and state-of-the-art results on the challenges the research, development, and deployment of IoT face at the global level.

IoT is creating a revolutionary new paradigm with opportunities in every industry, including Health Care, Pharmaceuticals, Food and Beverage, Agriculture, Computer, Electronics Telecommunications, Automotive, Aeronautics, Transportation Energy, and Retail, to apply the massive potential of the IoT to achieving real-world solutions. The beneficiaries will include semiconductor companies, device and product companies, infrastructure software companies, application software companies, consulting companies, and telecommunication and cloud service providers. IoT will create new revenues annually for these stakeholders and potentially create substantial market share shakeups due to increased technology competition.

The IoT will fuel technology innovation by creating the means for machines to communicate several different types of information with one another. At the same time, it will contribute to the increased value of information created by the number of interconnections among things and the transformation of the processed information into knowledge shared in the Internet of Everything. The success of IoT depends strongly on enabling technology development, market acceptance, and standardization, which provides interoperability, compatibility, reliability, and effective operations on a global scale. The connected devices are part of ecosystems connecting people, processes, data, and things which are communicating in the cloud, using the increased storage and computing power and pushing for standardization of communication and metadata. In this context, product manufacturers have to address security, privacy, safety, and trust through the life cycle of their products, from design to the support processes.

The IoT developments address the whole IoT spectrum - from devices at the edge to cloud and datacentres on the backend and everything in between - through ecosystems created by industry, research, and application stakeholders that enable real-world use cases to accelerate the IoT and establish open interoperability standards and common architectures for IoT solutions.

Enabling technologies such as nanoelectronics, sensors/actuators, cyber-physical systems, intelligent device management, smart gateways, telematics, smart network infrastructure, cloud computing, and software technologies will create new products, services, and interfaces by creating smart environments and smart spaces with applications ranging from Smart Cities, smart transport, buildings, energy, and grid to smart health and life.

Technical topics discussed in the book include:
• Introduction
• Internet of Things Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda
• Internet of Things in the industrial context: Time for deployment.
• Integration of heterogeneous smart objects, applications and services
• Evolution from device to semantic and business interoperability
• Software define and virtualization of network resources
• Innovation through interoperability and standardisation when everything is connected anytime at anyplace
• Dynamic context-aware scalable and trust-based IoT Security, Privacy framework
• Federated Cloud service management and the Internet of Things
• Internet of Things Applications
