The traditional view of Internet of Things (IoT) attempts to connect all the physical objects to build a global, infrastructure-based IoT. In this paper, however, we will present opportunistic IoT, which is formed based on the ad hoc, opportunistic networking of devices (e.g., mobile phones, smart vehicles) using short-range radio techniques (e.g., Bluetooth, Wi-Fi). The opportunistic IoT demonstrates inherently the close relationship between human and opportunistic connection of smart things… CONTINUE READING
