The internet-of-things (IoT), a vast and eclectic mixture of sensors capable of generating actionable information, is changing the landscape of smart and connected healthcare. Although various aspects of the IoT have been discussed in the literature, this chapter identifies and estimates the potential of the IoT in transforming feedback control strategies to maintain health and promote wellness in people with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Ecosystems that can be developed by fusing IoT to state-of-the-art artificial pancreas (AP) systems are discussed, along with unique challenges that arise due to these modified feedback control loops. The potential of an IoT-ready AP in incorporating resource- and context-awareness to improve quality of glycemic control is demonstrated via simulation studies.
