From internet of things to smart cities, enabling technologies, edited by Hongjian Sun, Bashar I. Ahmad, Chao Wang

"From Internet of Things to Smart Cities: Enabling Technologies explores the information and communication technologies (ICT) needed to enable real-time responses to current environmental, technological, societal, and economic challenges. ICT technologies can be utilized to help with reducing carbon emissions, improving resource utilization efficiency, promoting active engagement of citizens, and more.This book aims to introduce the latest ICT technologies and to promote international collaborations across the scientific community, and eventually, the general public. It consists of three tightly coupled parts. The first part explores the involvement of enabling technologies from basic machine-to-machine communications to Internet of Things technologies. The second part of the book focuses on state of the art data analytics and security techniques, and the last part of the book discusses the design of human-machine interfaces, including smart home and cities.FeaturesProvides an extended literature review of relevant technologies, in addition to detailed comparison diagrams, making new readers be easier to grasp fundamental and wide knowledgeContains the most recent research results in the field of communications, signal processing and computing sciences for facilitating smart homes, buildings, and citiesIncludes future research directions in Internet of Things, smart homes, smart buildings, smart grid, and smart citiesPresents real examples of applying these enabling technologies to smart homes, transportation systems and citiesWith contributions from leading experts, the book follows an easy structure that not only presents timely research topics in-depth, but also integrates them into real world applications to help readers to better understand them."--Provided by publisher
