The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the disruptive technologies in today’s connected world. The idea is to connect every thing to the Internet. IoT holds the key to many current and future technologies that will significantly influence the quality and sustainability of life. The vision of IoT is to enable large scalemonitoring and/or control in order to either observe a phenomenon or to automate tasks. Many novel IoT applications are fueling an exponential growth in the deployment of embedded devices. These devices equipped with sensors and/or actuators with wireless communication capabilities are central in realizing the IoT infrastructure. These devices must have a small form factor in order to be portable, deployable and economical. Therefore, these devices are resource constrained with respect to the available power, computing and memory. In order to reduce the usage of the power on communications involved, amulti-hop approach is adopted, leading to wireless sensor networks
(WSNs).
