Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered as the core technology that can enable the design and operation of smart cities. TheIoTmakes components of smart cities, which need not be inherently smart or intelligent, smart or intelligent. For example, owing to IoT, buildings, energy-grids, transport-systems, and health-care systemsaremade smart or intelligent.IoT can be regarded as a configurable dynamic global network of networks consisting of four main components: (1) The Things, (2) Internet, (3) LAN, and (4) The Cloud. The “Things” refers to any physical object that has its own IP address and can connect andsend/receive data via network. TheIoT infrastructure consists of various components including sensors, electronics, networks, middleware, firmware, and software. This talk will present detailed insight of IoT. The talk will address many questions about IoTincluding the following: (1) What is IoT? (2) What are the critical components of IoT? (3) What are the challenges of design and operation of IoT? (4) How to performDesign for excellence (DFX) of IoT“Things”? (5) How can one simulate an IoT framework consisting of multidiscipline systems and components of IoT before its actual deployment? (6) What is the state-of-the-art in IoT and future direction?
