Research on IoT has important economic and social values for the development of the next generation of information, network, and communication technologies. However, it is still confusing for most people to understand IoT well, including definitions, contents, and differences from other similar concepts. IoT connects and fuses the physical world and cyber world by ubiquitous sensing, connection, and control with definite social attributes. It is hopeful that IoT can emancipate humans from onerous humanmachine interface work and information exploration. This book attempts to provide a future IoT vision, and answer some fundamental questions from various aspects, including concepts, architectures, models, and key technologies. It aims at helping readers find out the fundamental issues in IoT, and to be valuable IoT literature for college students, practicing engineers, researchers, business operators, and policy makers.
