Had an amazing time with these wonderful minds at IoTNAT 2019 in Rome to share our recent contributions towards the future of Internet of Things (IoT) and to chair a session.

IoTNAT 2019: The Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities to interconnect human beings as well as Machine-to-Machine (M2M), whereby sensors and networks allow all β€˜things’ to communicate directly with each other to share vital information allowing us to have an instrumented universe where accurate data is readily available to inform optimal decision making. The IoT is about to enable a range of new capabilities and services far beyond today’s offerings. It will fundamentally change how people go about their lives. According to Gartner, the number of objects connected to the Internet is set to reach 20 billion by 2020. Cisco estimates the number will be close to 26 billion objects by 2020. Others believe the actual number will be even higher with the assumption that any object with a simple micro controller and on-off switch will be connected to the Internet in the near feature. The scale of the IoT is set to have a major economic, social and environmental impacts; the intersection of which forms the future sustainable growth.

Poor healthcare plays a huge role in the increasing death rates in LEDCs, from decrease in doctors to lack of medication and efficient medical equipment. This book presents the design end implementation of a smart health monitoring system aimed at reducing the health risks in developing countries. Specifically, reducing the number of outbursts related to diseases, and helping maintain health standards in Nainativu for the implemented system is used as a case study.

Home Automation: By Ms Zainab Al-Waisi

Nowadays, electricity companies have started applying smart grid in their systems rather than the conventional electrical grid (manual grid). Due to the smart grid benefits by producing an efficiency and effectiveness of energy management and control, reduce the cost of production, save energy, and it is more reliable compared to the conventional grid. Smart meters produced to be more eco-friendly. A smart meter is an advanced energy meter which measures the power consumption, monitors, and controls electrical devices. Currently, smart meters have been adopted in many countries since the 2000s and it can be used for providing economic, social, and environmental benefits for multiple stakeholders. The design of smart meter can be customized depending on the customer and the utility company needs. There are different sensors and devices supported by dedicated communication infrastructure which can be utilized to implement smart meters. We have therefore implemented a full working smart meter system that is equipped with a load management capabilities by incorporating smart embedded system design solutions.
