About this book

Many of the initial developments towards the Internet of Things have focused on the combination of Auto-ID and networked infrastructures in business-to-business logistics and product lifecycle applications. However, the Internet of Things is more than a business tool for managing business processes more efficiently and more effectively – it will also enable a more convenient way of life. Since the term "Internet of Things" first came to attention when the Auto-ID Center launched their initial vision for the EPC network for automatically identifying and tracing the flow of goods within supply-chains, increasing numbers of researchers and practitioners have further developed this vision. The authors in this book provide a research perspective on current and future developments in the Internet of Things. The different chapters cover a broad range of topics from system design aspects and core architectural approaches to end-user participation, business perspectives and applications.

About the authors

Dieter Uckelmann is managing director of the LogDynamics Lab at the University of Bremen since July 2005. His main research area includes the synchronization of material, information, and financial flows under the influence of Auto-ID and billing technologies. Dieter Uckelmann is co-founder and president of the Global RF Lab Alliance – an international network of RFID-focused research organizations with representatives in Europe, USA and Asia and associate editor of the International Journal of RF Technologies: Research and Applications. Mark Harrison is the Director of the Cambridge Auto-ID Lab, providing expertise in information architectures and technologies. He is deeply involved in standardization activities at EPCglobal and has co-chaired the Tag Data Translation work group and Data Discovery Joint Requirements Group and currently co-chairs the Discovery Services work group, as well as participating in the EPCglobal Architecture Review Committee and GS1 Architecture Group. Mark is also a co-founder of the Fosstrak open source project and has contributed to the Tag Data Translation modules. Florian Michahelles is a Project Manager and Associate Director of the Auto-ID Labs at ETH Zurich. His research interests comprise the design of an infra-structure of an Internet of Things for involving consumers, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) aspects of consumer RFID systems and the development of novel Internet of Things applications tailored towards consumers’ needs. Michahelles has published 50+ papers in international journals (e.g. IEEE Pervasive Computing, Computer & Graphics) and at major conferences (IoT, Ubicomp, Pervasive, MobileHCI).
