Research

In this section we will summarize the research goals and purpose of this work.

Our Foucs
We focus on research towards the Internet of Things, where we will have billions of devices connected and communicating on the Internet.
In this future, we will have demands global sensing and actuating in real-time demanding scenarios.
Research Problem
The problem which this research is trying to solve is:
How can sensors and actuators be shared in an Internet-of-Things and be used in next generation intelligent applications,
given the demands that these next generation application requires for high Quality-of-Experience?
The requirements which we are looking for, and that SensibleThings addresses are:
  • Scalable logarithmic or better scaling of communication load in end-points
  • No central point of failure fully distributed and several ways to connect into the platform
  • Bidirectional capable of communicating with both sensors and actuators, two way communication
  • Fast capable of signaling in real-time between end points, in a peer-to-peer manner
  • Current all data retrieved should be the most current values
  • Lightweight able to run on mobile devices with limited resources, such as smartphones
  • Seamless capable of handling heterogeneous infrastructures and different end user devices
  • Stable reliably handle transient nodes joining and leaving with high churn rates, while making sure that all queries return an answer
  • Extensible capable of adding new features and modules without complete redistribution, the add ins
Results
Our results include the SensibleThings platform itself, as well a number of proof-of-concept applications running on top of the platform.
In addition to different types of evaluations, comparisons, and integrations with other types of Internet-of-Things platforms.
Further results, such as our peer reviewed papers can be found online on scientific publication sites.
