Abstract:

Internet of Things IoT is a buzzword that is commonly used to describe the proliferation of wirelessly connected embedded systems such as cellular phones, sensors, appliances, vehicles, and more. The IoT has been enabled by a confluence of technologies, namely increasingly capacious batteries, extreme miniaturization of processing horsepower, and ubiquitous access to broadband wireless communication. The end result of improvements in these areas is that computer systems that can sense and actuate their environment can be made smaller and cheaper and hence more numerous. The proliferation of these devices, and the fact that they are connected to the internet on equal footing with traditional desktop and server computers has blurred the lines on what exactly computing is, and where the work to do the computation is performed.
