Development and application of global internet of things interoperability technique with semantics

March 8th, 2018|Publications|

The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered as a potential technology for solving a wide range of social problems and providing services in a variety of fields such as smart homes, smart factories, healthcare and the public sector by allowing various devices to access and interact with each other through the Internet. However, proprietary IoT platforms which are not able to communicate with other platforms because of the different data model and data access mechanisms cause an interoperability problem. In [...]

Design and Implementation of Mobility Management Architecture for Internet of Things using CoAP

March 8th, 2018|Publications|

In an Internet of Things (IoT) environment, IoT devices are normally used to transmit signal messages through unreliable wireless networks. However, because of the mobile nature of IoT devices, they end up losing connection to the network, thus leading to the loss of valuable signals at the monitoring end. Standard mobility management protocols like MIPv6 and its extensions may not be suitable to cope with this problem in an IoT environment, because they do not consider the constrained processing and [...]

An Overview of Standardization efforts for enabling Vehicular-to-Everything Services

March 8th, 2018|Publications|

Abstract: The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has been working on developing specifications on Machine to Machine Communications (M2M) and on the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) bringing light into the associated service and network requirements. This paper presents a special form of M2M/IoT communication, where at least one communication device is part of a vehicle that automatically communicates with other vehicles, pedestrians and Road Side Units (RSU). The initial efforts towards the so called Vehicular-to-Everything (V2X) specifications are based [...]

Toward a Trust Evaluation Mechanism in the Social Internet of Things

March 8th, 2018|Publications|

Abstract: In the blooming era of the Internet of Things (IoT), trust has been accepted as a vital factor for provisioning secure, reliable, seamless communications and services. However, a large number of challenges still remain unsolved due to the ambiguity of the concept of trust as well as the variety of divergent trust models in different contexts. In this research, we augment the trust concept, the trust definition and provide a general conceptual model in the context of the Social [...]

Towards Context Classification and Reasoning in IoT

November 21st, 2017|Publications|

Internet of Things (IoT) is the future of ubiquitous and personalized intelligent service delivery. It consists of interconnected, addressable and communicating everyday objects. To realize the full potentials of this new generation of ubiquitous systems, IoT's `smart' objects should be supported with intelligent platforms for data acquisition, pre-processing, classification, modeling, reasoning and inference including distribution. However, some current IoT systems lack these capabilities: they provide mainly the functionality for raw sensor data acquisition. In this paper, we propose a framework [...]

Together or Alone: Detecting Group Mobility with Wireless Fingerprints

November 21st, 2017|Publications|

This paper proposes a novel approach for detecting groups of people that walk “together” (group mobility) as well as the people who walk “alone” (individual movements) using wireless signals. We exploit multiple wireless sniffers to pervasively collect human mobility data from people with mobile devices and identify similarities and the group mobility based on the wireless fingerprints. We propose a method which initially converts the wireless packets collected by the sniffers into people’s wireless fingerprints. The method then determines group [...]
