The Internet of Things (IoT) represents the physical world of devices and objects connected over the network using wireless sensors. This chapter gives detailed study about the different applications of IoT with the integration of WSN (wireless sensor networks) with Internet connectivity. This allows applications to communicate among themselves and users on a global scale. A large number of IoT applications, like smart home, buildings, transport, water management, healthcare, agriculture, environment and industries, together form the smart city. Along with this, various challenges in the implementation of applications are discussed related to the reliability, sustainability, and efficiency. An open architecture looking into current need of IoT is also proposed and discussed.
