  • Description:

    Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a world-wide network of interconnected objects uniquely addressable and controllable via the Internet. Smart Objects have identities and virtual behaviors, besides intelligent interfaces to connect and communicate within different social, environmental, and user contexts. Therefore, the IoT is an advanced and synergic union of different technologies, including networking, sensing, Big Data, Cloud/Edge/Fog computing, embedded systems, and Artificial Intelligence, that together deliver complete end-to-end solutions for a product or a service. The IoT paradigm has applications across many different industries and contexts through its flexibility and ability to be suitable in extremely heterogeneous application fields such as: hostile environments; indoor/outdoor monitoring and control; seismic and structural health monitoring; Early Warning systems for anthropic and natural disasters; cultural heritage monitoring; protection and valorization; bio-medical applications; health and wellness monitoring; localization and tracking of assets/people; industrial automation, predictive maintenance, and Industry 5.0; consumer applications; Smart Homes; Smart Cities; Smart Agriculture; Ambient Assisted Living; Virtual Reality and Extended Reality. Futhermore, the IoT takes advantage of powerful enabling technologies such as wireless sensor networks (WSNs), dedicated machine-to-machine (M2M) communication protocols, Machine and Deep Learning.
