Internet of Things: An Insight into Emerging Applications and Architectures

Authors(2) :-Soha Maqbool Bhat, Suhaib Ahmed

The recent advancements and intensive integration of various fields such as electronics, communication, information technology etc. has led to evolution of Internet of Things (IoT). In this paper, to begin with, a brief overview of IoT and its characteristics is presented. Further, various emerging application areas such as in health monitoring, industrial, intelligent and smart transport system, smart homes and smart grids are investigated in detail along with their respective architectures. Finally the possible research areas are presented in the future scope.
