A recent forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) envisions that 41 billion Internet-of-Things (IoT) endpoints will be in use by 2025, representing great business opportunities. The next generation IoT systems needs to perform distributed processing and coordinated behavior across IoT, edge and cloud infrastructures, manage the closed loop from sensing to actuation, and cope with vast heterogeneity, scalability and dynamicity of IoT systems and their environments.
Smart IoT Systems have - the potential to flourish innovations in many application domains. For instance, the typical components of a smart city include infrastructure, transportation, intelligent energy consumption, health-care, and technology. These ingredients are what make the cities smart, efficient and optimized respect to the citizen and administration needs. The Internet of Things is an emerging paradigms that can contribute to make smart cities efficient and responsive.
