This chapter gives information on how the Internet of Things (IoT) can be utilized for the benefit of the population in rural areas. The IoT has many applications such as those for household, vigilance, sensor monitoring, actuators, intelligent displays, and vehicles. Thus, the IoT will bring unimaginable benefits and help humans lead a smart life. Smart rural development allows high yield agriculture, efficient health care, optimization of energy management, good sanitation, reduction in water wastage, and enhancement of the irrigation system using new technologies. Initially, this chapter describes technologies of IoT such as IoT Architecture, Sensors/Devices details, the configuration of Data, and coding possibilities with their Examples. This chapter also discusses how the cloud is integrated with IoT, web Services and IoT Services on the cloud, cloud Interfaces and tools for IoT, and storage of IoT data on the cloud. This chapter also discusses different case studies that can be applied for different applications in rural areas. The IoT technology thus used in various spheres of village life will enhance the development of rural areas making them financially strong, improving the quality of village life, and helping them to become smart villages.

Keywords: Arduino nano senseboard, Cloud architecture, Internet of Things, IoT app development platforms, Raspberry PI, Sensors, Smart rural development.
