Using Smart Objects to build the Internet of Things

September 2012 paper on 'Using Smart Objects to build the Internet of Things' by Tomás Sánchez López, Damith C. Ranasinghe, Mark Harrison, Duncan McFarlane

 

The term Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept that encompasses a variety of technologies and research areas that aim to extend the existing internet to real world objects . Some of the potential benefits from the IoT realisation are enormous, both for individuals and businesses. Some of the most promising applications include: improved management of global supply chain logistics, product counterfeit detection, manufacturing automation, smart homes and appliances, e-government (electronic official document and currency), improved integrated vehicle health management and e-health (patient monitoring). This paper examines the technologies that will be fundamental for realising the Internet of Things (IoT) concept and proposes an architecture that integrates them into a single platform.
