Internet of Things Success Stories #1


Although different reports forecast billions of installed devices and billions of dollars of revenue in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain for the coming years, many people are not aware of the potential of IoT. Moreover, many concerns, for example concerning privacy, security and interoperability, are expressed. However, working within the Internet of Things European Research Cluster (IERC), we are aware of all exiting possibilities of new businesses and applications developed within our research projects and demonstrated by industrial partners in many real pilots such as in smart cities.

With this book, we want to increase awareness on IoT's positive sides by presenting eleven different IoT success stories, covering topics such as: smart cities with waste management, publish transport or smart shopping; monitoring of the environment or buildings; manufacturing; agriculture; and hospital procedures.

This book is the first of a series which will be an open space for business market stake-holders such as SMEs, but also for researchers to present their success story on how IoT can be used in a particular field to successfully - and often in a cost-effective manner - solve a particular problem (e.g., saving energy, improve heath care, reduce costs).
