Internet of Things (IoT) envisages a compelling future where vehicles, machines, buildings, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, sensors, actuators, and software are becoming capable of sensing, actuation, communication, computation, and gain insight from collected data as well. In short, IoT brings together devices, cloud, data, and people to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than everbefore.A typical cloud-based IoT application scenario is showcased in Figure 7.1.
