IoT-Based Wireless Sensor Network Systems: Towards CPS Intelligence


Abstract: It is still debatable whether the progress made in the field of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is applicable to the fields of Internet of things and wireless sensor networks. The progression of Internet of Things (IoT) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are leading into the more comprehensive and integrated organization of the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). Both the Cloud and Fog (or Edge-computing) plays important role in extending the capability of wireless sensor networks. This, in effect, enables the virtualization and support intelligence around the various services to back up what the wireless sensor network could offer. Ultimately the goal of transparent coordination between the virtual and physical organizations could be achieved through the two ways communication between the cloud and the WSN using the IoT (or the Internet) connectivity. Timing and synchronization among the system components are of vital importance in coordinating the controlled actions with the events of a highly complex and distributed system. The field is directly associated with wide range of applications such as transportation, farming, horticulture, health, manufacturing, to name few. The talk will discuss the generic conceptual architecture for IoT based WSN system with emphasis on the degree of freedom offered by softwarization, edge computing and network functions virtualization. The talk also discusses examples on conceptual use-cases relevant to shared spaces, precision health and vehicular networks.
