The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision of the future Internet where most of the traffic is generated by machines, not by humans. This new and revolutionary phase in the history of the Internet will be characterized by an explosive increase in the amount of data collected and stored about the physical world. The processing of such data will provide for better and automated control of processes and allow for intelligent decision-making, resulting in economic and social development. This project aims at the advance of the underlying technologies that will support the Internet of Things, contributing to the insertion of the Brazilian academic researchers in this technologic revolution. Specifically, it will investigate the most important standards in wireless communication for IoT, through modeling, simulations and implementations in a real testbed, which may be used by other institutions in Brazil. Important issues in identity management in the context of testbeds and the coexistence of communication standards in ISM bands will also be investigated. Finally, a use case of techniques for indoor radiolocation will be developed.The project team consists of seven researchers of the Institute of Computing and the Department of Telecommunications at Universidade Federal Fluminense. During recent years, this group of researchers associated to the MídiaCom Laboratory contributed for the advancement of wireless communications in general, and more specifically in the topics of mesh networks, delay tolerant networks, wireless sensors networks, smart cities and other important areas in communications, publishing 38 journal papers in the last five years.
