Tutorial: Recent Advances in Internet of Things (IoT): Research Directions, Applications and Emerging Services
Internet of Things (IoT) is broadly defined as the merging of the physical and the digital worlds. The IoT paradigm is moving firmly from hype to reality. IoT has a multitude of potential use cases that are likely to hugely benefit several sectors – from transportation, energy and healthcare to supply chain management, smart manufacturing and smart homes. In the last few years, several organizations across the world are looking to exploit IoT in order to better understand and enhance their businesses. In this talk, we highlight the key developments, technical & research challenges in IoT. We take a detailed look at several applications that span diverse verticals. More specifically we discuss examples from the Automotive, Manufacturing and the Healthcare sectors and attempt to convince the researchers and the practitioners on the massive power of IoT. IoT is a highly complex yet critical technical space that promises huge benefits to mankind. What the future will look like is anyone’s guess!
