This morning, the book Interconnecting Smart Objects with IP: The Next Internet, authored by JP Vasseur and I, went from being "Available for preorder" to being "In stock" at Amazon.com! This book is the first comprehensive book on the subject of IP-based smart objects/sensor networks/Internet of things and covers the background and architecture (e.g. ubiquitous computing and sensor networks, IPv6 vs IPv4, IP vs non-IP), hardware and software (e.g. Contiki, uIP), protocols and mechanisms (e.g. RPL routing, 6lowpan header compression, web services), as well as applications (e.g. smart grid, industrial automation, smart cities).
