Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications

Thirumaran J, Kathirvelkumaran L


Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications describes how the Internet will expand as sensors and intelligence are connected to physical things such as physical assets or consumer devices and these things in turn are connected to the Internet. The vision and model have existed for years, but there has been acceleration in the number and types of things being connected and in the technologies for collecting, processing, and sharing information. The paper explores some of the key applications for IoT and M2M communications, including consumer electronics, automotive and transportation, energy and utilities, industrial and commercial buildings, and others.
