From the Editor's Desk
Welcome to the latest issue of the High Tech AIDCourier.
This month we start to cover a new topic, the Internet of Things (IoT). It seems that this term has lost some favor in the USA (see RFID Journal and my comment - http://www.rfidjournal.com/article/view/7638/1) but it is gaining strength in the rest of the world. Wikipedia has an interesting entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_Things but it is worth noting that in Europe, there have been almost 40 projects sponsored by the Eu on the subject. The meaning is so much more than RFID and will lead us into the Future Internet as it is being called. If you are interested in the volume of research on IoT in Europe, then I suggest you look at http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/shanghai2010/pdf/cerp_iot_clusterbook_2009.pdf
