About the book

Nowadays, the Internet of things (IoT) is a relatively new research field, so several developments and research works focused on this matter can be found in the literature and the market.

However, now that this technology has advanced enough, it is important to focus our attention on the use that is being made of it to expand its field of application and improve the current systems.

To achieve this goal, this book aims to collect a series of multidisciplinary works and studies about security in IoT systems, reliability mechanism for data transmission, the correct use of the information provided by those systems, and the inference about the data obtained. Moreover classical IoT systems with new approaches will be included.

The main goal of this book is to give a new vision inside IoT systems by combining them with other new technologies, and without losing sight of the new advances and applications around these systems.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Blanka Gugic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
