IoT Technologies in Smart-Cities
From sensors to big data, security and trust
Smart City and sensing platforms are considered some of the most significant topics in the Internet of Things (IoT). Sensors are at the heart of the IoT, and their development is a key issue if such concepts are to achieve their full potential.
This book addresses the major challenges in realizing smart city and sensing platforms in the era of the IoT and the Cloud. Challenges vary from cost and energy efficiency to availability and service quality. To tackle these challenges, sensors must meet certain expectations and requirements such as size constraints, manufacturing costs and resistance to environmental factors.
This book focuses on both the design and implementation aspects for smart city and sensing applications that are enabled and supported by IoT paradigms. Attention is also given to data delivery approaches and performance aspects.
