Radio Frequency Identification techniques (RFID) and related identification technologies will be the cornerstones of the upcoming Internet of Things (IOT).This paper aims to show a skeleton of the Internet of Things and we try to address some essential issues of the Internet of Things like its architecture and the interoperability, etc. At the beginning we describe an overview of the Internet of Things. Then we give our architecture design proposal of the Internet of Things and then we design a specific the Internet of Things application model which can apply to automatic facilities management in the smart campus. At last, we discuss some open questions about the Internet of Things.
