Recent advances in technologies have allowed the design of small-size low-power and low-cost devices that can be connected to the Internet, enabling the emerging paradigm of Internet-of-things (IoT). IoT covers an ever-increasing range of applications, e.g., health-care monitoring, smart homes and buildings, etc. In this invited paper, we discuss and summarize the IoT paradigm with a special focus on energy consumption and methodologies for its minimization. Furthermore, we also discuss about reliability in the context of IoT devices. In all, this paper attempts to be a starting point for readers interested in developing energy-efficient IoT devices.
