Smart cities are not merely the infusion of technology into a city’s infrastructure, but also require citizens interacting with their urban environment in a smart and informed manner. Transportation is key aspect of smart cities, where new route-planning applications provide as connected Car applications. For example, On-Board Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Apps, smartphone apps, API development, OBD-II, and SDL. Moreover, by using proprietary mobile apps, it is possible to get the GPS coordinates of a car, trace its route, open its doors, start its engine, and turn on its auxiliary devices. In addition, to study the usage of ICT to enhance quality and performance of urban services, reduce costs and resource consumption, and engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. The IoT is enabled by the latest developments in RFID, smart sensors, communication technologies, and Internet protocols. The basic premise is to have smart sensors collaborate directly without human involvement to deliver a new class of applications. The current revolution in Internet, mobile, and machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies can be seen as the first phase of the IoT. In the coming years, the IoT is expected to bridge diverse technologies to enable new applications by connecting physical objects together in support of intelligent decision making. This paper presents an overview of technical details that pertain to the IoT enabling technologies and applications. Compared to other survey papers in the field, our objective is to provide a more thorough summary of the most relevant application issues to enable researchers and application developers to get up to speed quickly on how ICT provide new route-planning application using IoT. We also provide an overview of some of the key IoT and M2M challenges presented in the recent literature and provide a summary of related research work. Moreover, we explore the relation between the IoT and M2M technologies. Also, present the need for better horizontal integration among IoT services. Finally, we present detailed service use-cases to illustrate how the different solutions presented in the paper fit together to deliver desired IoT & M2M services. Since more devices are connected to the Internet every day and for various purposes, this will generate increasing amounts of data that will need to be crunched. New and better analytics systems will have to be developed, not to mention cloud storage space to deal with all the data.
