Proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) enabled rapid enhancements for the applications not only in home and environment scenarios, but also in factory automation. Now, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) offers all the advantages of IoT to the industrial scenarios, applications ranging from remote sensing and actuating to de-centralization and autonomy.
In this book, the editor aims at presenting the IIoT and its place during the industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), while they are taking us to a better, sustainable, automated and safer world. The book will cover the cross relations and implications of IIoT with existing wired/wireless communication/networking and safety technologies of the Industrial Networks. Moreover, practical use-case scenarios from the industry, for the application of IIoT on smart factories, smart cities and smart grid are presented. Especially, IoT-driven advances in commercial and industrial building lighting and in street lighting are presented as a specific example to shed light on the application domain of IIoT.
The state of the art in Industrial Automation is also presented not only to give a better understanding of the enabling technologies, potential advantages and challenges of the Industry 4.0 and IIoT but also to foster interest on exploring this promising area.
Finally yet importantly, security section of the book covers the cyber-security related needs of the IIoT users and the services that might address these needs. First, user privacy, data ownership, proprietary information handling related to IIoT networks will be investigated. Then, the intrusion prevention, detection and mitigation part will conclude the book.
