Over the next decade, most devices connected to the Internet will not be used by people in the familiar way that personal computers, tablets and smart phones are. Billions of interconnected devices will be monitoring the environment, transportation systems, factories, farms, forests, utilities, soil and weather conditions, oceans and resources.

Many of these sensors and actuators will be networked into autonomous sets, with much of the information being exchanged machine-to-machine directly and without human involvement.   Machine-to-machine communications are typically terse. Most sensors and actuators will report or act upon small pieces of information - “chirps”.  Burdening these devices with current network protocol stacks is inefficient, unnecessary and unduly increases their cost of ownership.  

This must change.  The architecture of the
Internet of Things must evolve now by
incorporating simpler protocols toward at the edges of the
network, or remain forever inefficient.   Rethinking the Internet of Things describes reasons why we must rethink current approaches to the Internet of Things. Appropriate architectures that will coexist with existing networking protocols are described in detail. An architecture comprised of integrator functions, propagator nodes, and end devices, along with their interactions, is explored.

Great free book! Going to be a good read.

Yeah, this is about how I feel about the internet of things: "inefficient, unnecessary and unduly increases [the] cost of ownership.

  This is how I feel about government...

  My well pump reporting onlne has saved me thousand$s

just sayin

Just starting an automation project and definitely finding existing consumer based protocols (zwave especially) to be be problematic even in small deployments. Can't imagine doing a large scale rollout on that sorta tech.

I don't think this stuff will be overly complex persay... it can be but i think things like the hue bulbs show it can be simple and powerful at the same time.

Anyways, interested in reading the thoughts in this book
