Title of the speech: “Green Internet of Things for Smart Cities"
Abstract:   Emerging smart cities will leverage information and communication technologies (ICT) to address urban challenges and improve the well-being of citizens. A key development in ICT is the Internet of Things (IoT), which extends the Internet to connect not only computers and smart devices carried by people, but “things” with embedded sensors, actuators, and networking capabilities. IoT will enable many new services and applications such as smart grids, intelligent transportation, e-health, smart homes/buildings/offices/factories, which will be an integral part of the future smart cities. Of particular interest are applications that contribute to the global efforts towards a greener society by reducing energy consumption, shortening travel times, etc. In many applications, IoT will employ embedded radios and wireless machine-to-machine communications to enable ubiquitous connectivity anywhere any time. Many smart devices with embedded radios are battery operated, and in many situations battery replacement may be awkward if not impossible.  Regardless of the power source, with deployment of billions of devices anticipated, global power consumption of IoT may become considerable.  Therefore in the continued development of IoT for deployment in smart cities, it is inevitable that energy efficiency becomes an important part of the research agenda towards “green IoT for smart cities”.   In this presentation, we shall give an overview of IoT for smart cities and examine how IoT contributes to a greener society. We shall also highlight some of our recent research results on utilizing the powerful computation capacity of cloud computing to enable green IoT for smart cities.  Open problems and future research directions will be discussed.
