The exponential growth of connected devices, big data and cloud computing is creating a hyper-connected world, fostering innovative use cases, opportunities and challenges in our society and daily lives. The successful advent of this hyper-connected scenario depends on the capability to integrate technologies such as the Internet of Things, Mobile-to-Mobile communication, connected vehicles/drones, cloud computing, edge computing, data gathering/dissemination and social networks. This course discusses various case studies in this field in order to understand its (interdisciplinary) research potentiality.

- Overview and taxonomy
- Mobile-to-Mobile communication and services
- Vehicular/Flying Networks
- Pervasive data gathering and dissemination
- Open discussion about case studies
