Towards a Definition of the Internet of Things (IoT)
We invite your involvement in progressing the definitions within the Internet of Things (IoT). The IEEE IoT Initiative has recently released a document that’s intended to establish a baseline definition of IoT in the context of applications that range from small, localized systems constrained to a specific location, to a large global system that is geographically distributed and composed of complex sub-systems. We have posted the document below, with the intention of creating an environment for universal discourse on IoT and the many areas it touches. Your contribution of knowledge and perceptions to this “living document” can facilitate a better understanding of the subject, lead to further research, and advance our understanding of this emerging concept.
This document also provides an overview of some of basic architectural requirements as they relate to IoT, as well as highlighting some of the work being undertaken by various international projects and activities. Your ongoing contributions to enrich this document’s content with more in-depth analysis of the current state of the industry is highly valued and we look forward to your active role in helping us better define and advance the IoT ecosystem.
