The Internet of Things (IoT) is a paradigm where everyday objects can be equipped with identifying, sensing, networking, and processing capabilities that will allow them to communicate with one another and with other devices and services over the Internet to accomplish some objectives. Besides, the IoT implies that any single object is a real-time data source. This is beginning to transform the way of doing business, the organization of the public sector, the daily living style of millions of people and particularly in the various activities of the industry. The main objective of this book chapter is to present the application of the IoT in the industry, describing its application domains, platforms and various study cases. In addition, we present a comparative analysis of the study cases, as well as the trends and challenges of the IoT according to each domain of application.
