In this talk, I will introduce several of our ongoing Internet of Things (IoT) projects such as the GreenOrbs and CitySee. In these projects, we have deployed over 1000 sensor nodes, with totally more than 10,000 sensors, for monitoring water, CO2, NO2, automobiles, and human activities. I will also present TagSys, a passive RFID based luggage tracking system, which has resulted the ACM MobiCom 2014 Best Paper Award and has been deployed in Beijing International Airport with more 110,000 tags. I will focus on a few key ideas such as passive diagnosis, sensorless sensing, and communication as a sensing, the opportunities and challenges in extremely large scale IoT systems, and the impact of IoT to the new industrial revolution.
