TL;DR: The present contribution provides a solid state of the art on the main topics related to IoT-aided robotics services: communication networks, robotics applications in distributed and pervasive environments, semantic-oriented approaches to consensus, and network security.
Abstract: The ongoing revolution of Internet of Things (IoT), together with the growing diffusion of robots in many activities of every day life, makes IoT-aided robotics applications a tangible reality of our upcoming future. Accordingly, new advanced services, based on the interplay between robots and "things", are being conceived in assisting humans. Nevertheless, the path to a mature development of IoT-aided robotics applications requires several pivotal issues to be solved, design methodologies to be consolidated, and strong architectural choices to be discussed. This paper discusses technological implications, open issues, and target applications in the IoT-aided robotics domain. In particular, the present contribution is four-folded. First, it provides a solid state of the art on the main topics related to IoT-aided robotics services: communication networks, robotics applications in distributed and pervasive environments, semantic-oriented approaches to consensus, and network security. Second, it highlights the most important research challenges to be faced. Third, it describes the technological tools available nowadays. Fourth, it summarizes lessons learned to foster a joint scientific investigation among research teams with complementary skills.

TL;DR: A control protocol is proposed which ensures that a given off-line sporadic schedule can be adapted on-line in a timely manner such that the static periodic schedule has not been disturbed and the IEEE 802.15.4 standard compliance remains intact.
Abstract: E lectronic Sensors have been around for decades. With the miniaturization of electronic circuits and large scale integration, it has become possible to combine the sensors with the digital circuitry to fabricate devices of small size. Such devices with combined sensing, processing and communicating capabilities are known as sensor nodes. These sensor nodes have a huge number of applications scaling from home automation, health care, agriculture, disaster management and military applications to industrial automation and control. Many of these applications require real-time data propagation. Health care to industrial control are the areas where these sensor nodes find their applications. The basic requirement of realtime applications is that data sensing, processing, communication and response generation must be accomplished within a certain time limit. In this regard, the IEEE 802.15.4 standard has become defacto standard for low rate WPAN for wireless sensor networks. The contention free period of the beacon enabled mode of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard makes the IEEE 802.15.4 standard widely acceptable (due to its real-time communication support) for industrial control applications. The said mode requires that nodes are arranged in a star topology to form a cluster with a cluster head. The cluster head reserves bandwidth for each node of the cluster, where sensing event is expected to occur. In case of periodic events, the advanced knowledge is available in the form of time of occurrence, period, execution time and deadline of the occurred period event. This knowledge makes the offline bandwidth planning relatively easy. In case of sporadic events, however, the time of occurrence of sporadic events is not known before the occurrence of sporadic event. Therefore it is difficult to plan bandwidth for sporadic events offline. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) find applications in the industrial automation where periodic and sporadic events occur. The combined propagation of information generated by periodic and sporadic events from a sensor node to an actuator node is challenging due to the random nature of sporadic events, particularly if missing the deadlines is disastrous. The IEEE 802.15.4 standard provides the basis for a real-time communication mechanism between neighboring nodes of the WSN at the Media Access Control layer. However, the standard does not address realtime communications over multiple hops. To support the industrial applications with real-time requirements, this work proposes an offline bandwidth estimation technique and two novel on-line control protocols, which exploit the basis provided by the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for on-line bandwidth allocation for sporadic data propagation. A control protocol is also proposed which ensures that a given off-line sporadic schedule can be adapted on-line in a timely manner such that the static periodic schedule has not been disturbed and the IEEE 802.15.4 standard compliance remains intact. The proposed protocol is simulated in Opnet. The simulation results are collected in the form of time stamps of activities occurring at different nodes of the network. The compliance of the information is discussed to prove the correctness of the proposed protocol regarding efficient real-time sporadic event delivery along with the periodic events. Moreover, efficient energy dissipation is also discussed after collecting the energy dissipation, and presenting it in the form of bar graphs and analyzing these graphs.

TL;DR: The automatic standby power cut-off outlet and a ZigBee controller with IR code learning functionality are proposed and designed to reduce standby power consumption and to make the room easily controllable with an IR remote control of a home appliance.
Abstract: This paper proposes remote-controllable and energy-saving room architecture to reduce standby power consumption and to make the room easily controllable with an IR remote control of a home appliance. To realize the proposed room architecture, we proposed and designed the automatic standby power cut-off outlet and a ZigBee controller with IR code learning functionality. The proposed power outlet monitors the power consumption for the predetermined time and completely cuts off the power supply when the monitored power is below the threshold. This power outlet has a function of changing the threshold power, which enables any kinds of home appliances to be applied to the power outlet. To efficiently manage the power outlets and the lights, we proposed the ZigBee controller with IR code learning functionality. The ZigBee controller has several onboard buttons to wake up the power outlets and control the dimming light. By using IR code learning functionality, the ZigBee controller can assign a certain IR code of a remote control of a home appliance to the power outlet or the dimming light. A user can control the power outlets and the dimming light with an IR remote control of any home appliance. Our proposed room architecture provides the remote-controllable and energy-saving room.

TL;DR: An extensive campaign of measurements is reported on aiming at analyzing the performance of the CC2431's hardware location-finder engine when localization needs to be performed in a realistic and dynamic indoor propagation environment.
Abstract: In this paper, we analyze and describe the achievable performance of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) testbed platform, which has been deployed at the Center of Excellence DEWS (University of L'Aquila, Italy) for positioning applications, and which is implemented using CC2431 sensor nodes developed by Texas Instruments® (TI)/Chipcon. In particular, we will report on an extensive campaign of measurements aiming at analyzing the performance of the CC2431's hardware location-finder engine when localization needs to be performed in a realistic and dynamic indoor propagation environment. Experimental results will show that the need of site-specific parameters for the correct operation of the location engine may severely reduce the localization accuracy of the system in dynamic environments. A simple solution to counteract this problem will also be introduced, and the related improvement will be quantified via experiments.
