Abstract: The emergence of Internet of Things, and  of Everything,  is enabling network based integration pervade into all aspects of engineering and social systems. Driven by lower cost and size, and higher potency  and efficiency of devices  capable of sensing, actuating, processing and communicating,  the IoT promises to dramatically increase our ability to embed intelligence in things and in the environment,  and thus alter the way systems are implemented and evolve. Ubiquitous Internet access allows the  utilization of cloud resources on demand  for processing as well as storage of IoT  information for learning and analytics.  The evolution of this new internet landscape will be considered with focus on technologies that bridge the gap between physical and digital worlds, including networking standards, hardware platforms, software and research challenges.  A novel coordinate space will be presented for self-organization of large-scale IoT. A range of applications will be considered to  provide a perspective of Internet of Things and address how these technologies can be exploited to design the next generation integrated systems.
