IoT-based scientific research has recently become an imperative component in monitoring human daily lives. The IoT has created an explosion of sensor data due to the increased number of devices with embedded sensors. This ranges from smart watches and smartphones to healthcare wearable and head-mounted devices. The Internet has drastically changed the way we live, moving interactions between people at a virtual level in several contexts spanning from professional life to social relationships. The IoT has the potential to add a new dimension to this process by enabling communications with and among mobile phones and smart devices, thus leading to the vision of obtrusiveness, or in other words, \”anytime, anywhere\” computing and communications. Additionally, the IoT is a key enabler for the realization of future embedded world as it allows for the interactions with/between the tiny smart things leading to an effective integration of information into the digital world. The basic idea of this concept is the pervasive presence around us of a variety of things or objects – such as tiny sensors, actuators, mobile phones, u-things, etc. – which, through unique communication and interaction schemes, are able to communicate with each other and cooperate with their neighbors through wireless communication to provide quality services for users. The challenges and opportunities arising from a proper integration of the IoT with mobile computing and applications create a fascinating research field that deserves more in-depth investigations. One the one hand, mobile devices are expected to become the joining link between connected smart objects, the Internet, and end-users. Thus, the coupling among mobile technology, such objects and an embedded infrastructure constitutes the Mobile and Embedded Internet of Things. The smart IoT has the potential to revolutionize future software and hardware applications by influencing the real world to achieve better quality of life for the next generation.
