In this study, we explore communication problems in the area of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and Internet-of-Things (IoT) architectures in smart environments. Energy-efficient, reliable communication and protocols are of high interest.

M2M is being used in lot of applications and it’s becoming helpful for people in simple/smart things that can enhance the quality of life. M2M technology, in order to maximize its efficiency, uses other existing technologies like RFID, NFC and ZigBee.

More, ubiquitous computing from a smart cities perspective is of prime significance. Smart city research mainly focuses on applying next-generation information technologies in daily activities, like embedding sensors and actuators in hospitals (e-health services in smart environments), power grids, roads, buildings, water systems, vehicles, and other objects forming the IoT. A recent study identifies five industry sectors that are core to the development of smart cities: energy, water, transportation, buildings, and government.
