Cover Theme: The Internet of Things
The vision of interconnecting uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices, also called the Internet of Things (IoT), has been around since the early 1990s. Now, more than two decades later, the vision is becoming a reality in ever more areas of business and social life. Thus, the editorial team considered that the time had come for dedicating our cover theme to IoT. Although it is impossible to cover all facets of the fast-growing IoT field, we believe that the selected articles we present in this issue give you a good idea about the progress of IoT in Europe.
In the introductory article to the cover theme, Adam Kapovits, Eurescom’s coordinator of the IoT-related EU research project RERUM, gives an overview on the Internet of Things.
The article by EU-funded research project RERUM focuses on-device intelligence, which the three authors regard as a way to improve security and privacy of IoT.
In an exclusive interview the chairman of the IoT Forum, Mirko Presser, shares his insights on the progress of IoT in Europe.
As a concrete example of IoT progress in Europe, Michael Tost from the public sanitation provider in Berlin explains the opportunities of smart waste bins for the German capital.
Raffaele Giaffreda from CREATE-NET presents in his article the iCore project and how it is enhancing IoT with cognitive technologies.
