The Internet of Things (IoT) is used to link any kind of thing in the
physical world with a virtual representation or identity on the
internet. A thing can basically be any physical object that has embedded
sensors and/or actuators and is connected to the internet. Although the
term is mainly associated with end consumer products, where more and
more intelligent things are changing our daily lives, there is a similar
trend taking shape in the industrial area, where machines and devices
are also becoming increasingly intelligent and connected. In industry,
we refer to the “Industrial Internet”, “Cyber Physical Systems” or, in
Germany, “Industry 4.0”.  Governments around the globe are taking this
trend seriously and investing heavily in research activities. In recent
years,  many projects in IoT have made initial progress in solutions for
the smart logistics, smart home, industrial automation, connected
health, smart ports, smart agriculture, etc. In this talk, I will
present the background and state of arts in IoT as well as its
applications, challenges, and opportunities from software companies
perspective.
