The term Internet of Things (IoT) is used to describe embedded sensing devices with Internet connectivity, allowing them to interact with each other, services, and people on a global scale. This level of connectivity can increase reliability, sustainability, and efficiency by improved access to information. Environmental monitoring, home and building automation and smart grids could be interconnected, allowing information to be shared between systems.

One day, internet will connect everyone to everything of everywhere at every time and will be the backbone of business operations, but there is still a long way to go.

The seminar consists of two parts. In the first part, the IoT related research activities of the S2IS group (Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems, Massey University, New Zealand) will be presented. In the second part, an overview of IoT will be described.

This seminar will present the challenges and opportunities of making the IoT feasible in the coming years.
