About this book

This holistic book is an invaluable reference for addressing various practical challenges in architecting and engineering Intelligent IoT and eHealth solutions for industry practitioners, academic and researchers, as well as for engineers involved in product development. The first part provides a comprehensive guide to fundamentals, applications, challenges, technical and economic benefits, and promises of the Internet of Things using examples of real-world applications. It also addresses all important aspects of designing and engineering cutting-edge IoT solutions using a cross-layer approach from device to fog, and cloud covering standards, protocols, design principles, reference architectures, as well as all the underlying technologies, pillars, and components such as embedded systems, network, cloud computing, data storage, data processing, big data analytics, machine learning, distributed ledger technologies, and security. In addition, it discusses the effects of Intelligent IoT, which are reflected in new business models and digital transformation. The second part provides an insightful guide to the design and deployment of IoT solutions for smart healthcare as one of the most important applications of IoT. Therefore, the second part targets smart healthcare-wearable sensors, body area sensors, advanced pervasive healthcare systems, and big data analytics that are aimed at providing connected health interventions to individuals for healthier lifestyles.
