The Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics are important enabling technologies of contemporary technology trends such as smart cities, Industry 4.0, etc., that promise to transform industries and to impact the way we live. In this presentation, we will introduce the key concepts of IoT, and the implementation components of real-world IoT devices and applications. Using air quality monitoring as a case study, we discuss the implementation of a mobile IoT device for air quality monitoring and a basic functional IoT stack for this application. We also discuss the concepts and implementation of data analytics techniques for the calibration of the air quality sensor to improve the accuracy of its data.
