IoT has massive potential to transform current business models and enhance human lifestyles. The emergence of high speed 5G mobile networks is also a driving force for developing IoT based solutions. With a huge number of things interconnected to each other, the kind of knowledge we can get seems limitless. IoT is proving its potential in various domains and with the current pace of research, IoT will soon find many new horizons to touch.

Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of things connected with each other through the internet. The term “things" refers to any entity in the real or virtual world. The domain of entities labeled as "things" constitutes nearly everything like electronic items, household goods, vehicles, living beings in the real world, and running a computer process in the virtual world. When an entity is said to be connected, it implies that it can send/receive data from other entities. When coupled with computing power, the communication mechanism of things creates an entirely new eco-system of information generating applications. IoT is now providing a base of technological advancement in various realms such as pervasive healthcare, smart homes, smart cities, connected logistics, automated supply-chain, manufacturing units, and many more areas. IoT is also paving the path for the emergence of the digital revolution in industrial technology, termed Industry 4.0. This book will present the most advanced research and current findings.
