Overview

Smart object technology, sometimes called the Internet of Things, is having a profound impact on our day-to-day lives. Interconnecting Smart Objects with IP is the first book that takes a holistic approach to the revolutionary area of IP-based smart objects. Smart objects are the intersection of networked embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, mobile telephony and telemetry, and mobile computer networking. This book consists of three parts, Part I focuses on the architecture of smart objects networking, Part II covers the hardware, software, and protocols for smart objects, and Part III provides case studies on how and where smart objects are being used today and in the future. The book covers the fundamentals of IP communication for smart objects, IPv6, and web services, as well as several newly specified low-power IP standards such as the IETF 6LoWPAN adaptation layer and the RPL routing protocol. This book contains essential information not only for the technical reader but also for policy makers and decision makers in the area of smart objects both for private IP networks and the Internet.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"JP Vasseur and Adam Dunkels have written an important and timely guide to the rapidly developing field of smart technologies and the Internet. This book provides a clear picture of key technical issues that are useful to both the expert and layman. As we continue to build out the smart grid, the 'electric internet,' I predict this book will become required reading for electric utility smart grid teams." - David Mohler, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Duke Energy

"As the CEO of my company, I have read it with pleasure and will transfer it to all engineers in my company in charge of developing IP V6 applications."- Paul Bertrand, Board member and founder of IPSO (IP for Smart Objects), Creator and Chairman at Watteco "The authors of this book offer a rich and thoughtful exploration of this new Internet canvas on which the 21stCentury will unfold. Prediction will be hard; we are all just going to have to live through it to find out what happens!"- Vinton Cerf, Internet Pioneer

"This book is a very valuable source for researchers and practitioners interested in reading up on the Internet of Things and Smart Objects. It provides a comprehensive treatment to the architecture and networking of smart objects using IP as well as application domains that can greatly benefit from the technology. I highly recommend it."--Dr. Feng Zhao, Assistant Managing Director, Microsoft Research Asia.
