Wireless Sensor Network and Internet of Things
 
Description
Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a world-wide network of interconnected objects uniquely addressable, readable, recognizable, locatable, and controllable via the Internet based on standard communication protocols. Things (or Smart Objects) have identities and virtual personalities operating in smart spaces using intelligent interfaces to connect and communicate within social, environmental, and user contexts. Therefore, IoT is an advanced automation and analytics system which exploits networking, sensing, big data, cloud/edge computing, embedded systems, and artificial intelligence technology to deliver complete systems for a product or service. IoT systems have applications across industries through their unique flexibility and ability to be suitable in any environment. They enhance data collection, automation, operations, and much more through smart devices and powerful enabling technology. A wireless sensor network (WSN) is a wireless network consisting of distributed sensor nodes that monitor specific physical or environmental events or phenomena, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, or motion, at different locations and it is a subset of possible IoT systems. Application fields of wireless sensor networks are very spread: physical security for military operations or hostile environment; indoor/outdoor environmental monitoring; seismic and structural monitoring; Early Warning Systems, bio-medical applications; health and wellness monitoring; indoor/outdoor localization and tracking; industrial automation and Industry 4.0; consumer applications, including smart homes.
