In future, the objects such as vehicles, smartphones, watches and electronic devices will be able to automate the tasks along with ubiquitous communication capabilities. Saving and reducing energy is challenging research area. Various energy saving approaches and techniques motivates researchers towards Green-Internet of Things (G-IoT). A smart word ubiquitously gathers and disseminates the information using various existing protocols. Modern applications demands energy efficient devices and protocols for G-IoT. Most of the time the emergency service applications are at remote places and their lifetime is a crucial part of the IoT enabled devices and applications. In modern applications, the multimedia information is a vital part in communication. Sensing and communication of multimedia information needs to be controlled in efficient way to achieve better performance and energy saving. In this chapter various techniques and approaches used for energy saving in Green-Internet of Things (G-IoT) are discussed in detail. This chapter discusses the various vital applications of IoT (Internet of Things) such as border security and battlefield systems. This paper also elaborates the energy saving approaches and techniques proposed by various researchers for such applications for ubiquitous environments. The broad classification of the applications of Internet of Things and the approaches used for energy saving are elaborated.
