In the modern world, the Internet of Things (IoT) has captured most of the applications in the market and it plays a significant role with various smart and interactive things that have provided a convenient environment for humans. Applications of IoT can be broadly classified based on consumer application, enterprise application, infrastructure management, industrial productivity, and so on. Some of the applications that implement the concepts of IoT are smart wearables, connected cars, industrial internet, precision agriculture, smart retail, energy management systems, and others. Advancement in IoT technology has resulted in automated home appliances and healthcare systems and also in the development of smart cities, smart homes, smart towns, and many more. For any application based on IoT, data are collected and are modeled using prediction analysis. The basic concept of using IoT is that it reduces waste, loss, and cost. The design of the IoT application should focus on increasing the energy efficiency and the cost efficiency of the system, improving safety, or creating better experiences. IoT is a field of the network, and it could be enabled either by wired or wireless communication networks. This refers to the technology where the machines could predict the data and work by itself. Here the devices that are connected to the private internet connection could communicate with others. The edge devices that are connected will create a huge amount of data. These data are generated at high speed, and also they face challenges like storage, computation, and networking. These issues can be handled by using cloud, edge, or cloud edge computing. This chapter focuses on the discussion of diverse applications in IoT because of its huge potential market, and also it enhances the comfort of our lives besides providing enhanced control of our daily and personal tasks with ease.
