Embedding Intelligence in IoT Edge
This tutorial is intended to provide an overview of concepts on the internet of Things (IoT), which would foster the development and deployment to manage smart sensors and develop infrastructure.
The recent technological advancements in sensors, wireless communications, low-power computing and the internet itself have led to a technical revolution called the Internet of Things. In recent past, we have seen a world being constantly filled with various smart things that are connected to the Internet of Things (IoT)/ in Cloud. As a result, a lot of research areas have emerged, amongst them, smart homes, wearable technology, industrial IoT, smartphones and intelligent transport systems to name a few. A closer look into the emerging areas indicates a trend to augment the physical devices or objects with sensing, computing, and its communication capabilities. These smart objects are connected together to form a network to make use of the collective effect of networked smart objects.
