Internet of Things (IoT) products and cyber-physical systems (CPS) are being utilized in almost every discipline and there continues to be significant increases in spending on design, development, and deployment of IoT applications and analytics within every domain, from our homes, schools, government, and industry. This practical text provides an introduction to IoT that can be understood by every engineering discipline and discusses detailed applications of IoT. Developed to help engineers navigate this increasingly important and cross-disciplinary topic, this work:
- Offers research-based examples and case studies to facilitate the understanding of each IoT primitive
- Highlights IoT’s connection to blockchain
- Provides and understanding of benefits and challenges of IoT and its importance to a variety of engineering disciplines
Written to be accessible to non-experts in the subject, What Every Engineer Should Know About the Internet of Things communicates the importance of this technology and how it can support and challenge all interrelated actors as well as all involved assets across many domains.
