Editorial: Industrial Internet of Things (I2oT) - Springer MONET SI



ndustrial Internet of Things (I2oT) consists of a variety of objects (e.g., sensors, RFID tags, actuators, mobile devices, appliances, industrial equipment), which could communicate and cooperate with each other to perform information sensing and automatically control, fulfilling various industrial applications (e.g., intelligent manufacturing, product quality inspection, equipment diagnostics, intelligent logistics). The essence of the I2oT is to provide companies with the opportunity to enhance their computing paraphernalia for use in industry, which in turn will render them more proficient and more profitable. By virtue of transforming embedded computers into intelligent systems, companies can improve the throughput of their processes and workforces, boost their productivity and hence enter new horizons. Numerous world-leading companies have discovered the great potential to benefit from I2oT. The realization of I2oT involves establishing smart connected infrastructures and remotely interconnecting the industrial applications with users by utilizing technologies such as distributed computing, ubiquitous computing and Cloud. However, there are still quite a number of critical issues (e.g., sensor deployment, big data and analysis, information management, information services, query processing, network security, software system) which could strongly influence the successful realization of I2oT.
