This book outlines the background and overall vision for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and services, including major standards. Key technologies are described, and include everything from physical instrumentation of devices to the cloud infrastructures used to collect data. Also included is how to derive information and knowledge, and how to integrate it into enterprise processes, as well as system architectures and regulatory requirements. Real-world service use case studies provide the hands-on knowledge needed to successfully develop and implement M2M and IoT technologies sustainably and profitably. Finally, the future vision for M2M technologies is described, including prospective changes in relevant standards. This book is written by experts in the technology and business aspects of Machine-to-Machine and Internet of Things, and who have experience in implementing solutions.

David Boyle is a Research Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. A member of the Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group, and contributing to the Digital Economy Laboratory, his research interests lie at the intersection of applied complex sensing, actuation and control systems (cyber-physical systems), data analytics, and digital economy. David received his PhD in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland, in 2009, having graduated with a B. Eng. (Hons) in Computer Engineering in 2005. His work has been recognised and awarded internationally, and published in the leading technical journals, including the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics (TIE), and Informatics (TII). He actively participates on a number of Technical Program, and Organising Committees, notably Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE), and the ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems; the premier conference in the field. Before joining Imperial, David worked with Wireless Sensor Network and Microelectronics Applications Integration Groups in the Microsystems Centre at Tyndall National Institute, and the Embedded Systems Research Group, University College Cork, Ireland, primarily developing 'green' wireless sensor networks to enable sustainable structural health monitoring. Previously, he was with France Telecom R&D - Orange Labs, focussing on end-to-end quality of service for urban machine-to-machine (M2M) services, and a Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar at the Higher Technical School of Telecommunications Engineering, Technical University of Madrid (ETSIT UPM).
