Recently, the technological advancement in embedded systems and wireless communication has enabled interconnection of massive electronic devices to support innovative services and promises better flexibility and efficiency. Such paradigm is referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) that promises ubiquitous connection to the Internet, turning common objects into connected devices. An emerging class of IoT-enabled industrial production systems is called the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) that, when adopted successfully, provides huge efficacy and economic benefits to industrial system installation, maintainability, reliability, scalability, and interoperability. This chapter aims at introducing briefly the concept of IIoT from technological and practical application aspects. The key challenges and trends on the up-to-date development of such paradigm will be overviewed.
