Generic Architecture for Ubiquitous IoT Applications

01 Jan 2020-pp 131-143

TL;DR: The final output of this research is a Generic Architecture for Ubiquitous IoT Applications, which can be used as a base architecture to build upon by specifying domain-oriented functions.

AbstractIn this research work, we study the ubiquitous IoT-based applications, systems and technology amongst areas like healthcare, personal assistance, social interactions, agriculture, environmental conditions, traffic management and home control. We further explore to seek out the common trends, framework and design methodology followed in these systems in order to propose an omnipresent generic architecture which can be used unanimously across all these domains along with their respective plug-ins to achieve their specific functionalities. We go further and verify our proposed architecture against the functionalities of various IoT applications. Hence, the final output of this research is a Generic Architecture for Ubiquitous IoT Applications, which can be used as a base architecture to build upon by specifying domain-oriented functions.

TL;DR: The proposed iHome Health-IoT platform seamlessly fuses IoT devices with in-home healthcare services for an improved user experience and service efficiency.
Abstract: In-home healthcare services based on the Internet-of-Things (IoT) have great business potential; however, a comprehensive platform is still missing. In this paper, an intelligent home-based platform, the iHome Health-IoT, is proposed and implemented. In particular, the platform involves an open-platform-based intelligent medicine box (iMedBox) with enhanced connectivity and interchangeability for the integration of devices and services; intelligent pharmaceutical packaging (iMedPack) with communication capability enabled by passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) and actuation capability enabled by functional materials; and a flexible and wearable bio-medical sensor device (Bio-Patch) enabled by the state-of-the-art inkjet printing technology and system-on-chip. The proposed platform seamlessly fuses IoT devices (e.g., wearable sensors and intelligent medicine packages) with in-home healthcare services (e.g., telemedicine) for an improved user experience and service efficiency. The feasibility of the implemented iHome Health-IoT platform has been proven in field trials.

TL;DR: This investigation takes the move by decomposing the storyline of a day in Robert's life, the authors' unlucky character in the not so far future, into simple processes and their interactions, and devise the main communication requirements for those processes and for their integration in the Internet as web services.
Abstract: This paper proposes the Internet of Things communication framework as the main enabler for distributed worldwide health care applications. Starting from the recent availability of wireless medical sensor prototypes and the growing diffusion of electronic health care record databases, we analyze the requirements of a unified communication framework. Our investigation takes the move by decomposing the storyline of a day in Robert's life, our unlucky character in the not so far future, into simple processes and their interactions. Subsequently, we devise the main communication requirements for those processes and for their integration in the Internet as web services. Finally, we present the Internet of Things protocol stack and the advantages it brings to health care scenarios in terms of the identified requirements.

TL;DR: Experimental results demonstrated that the Raspberry-Pi single-board system is able to accurately measure: temperature, humidity, light level and concentrations of the carbon monoxide harmful air pollutant.
Abstract: This paper proposes an approach to build a cost-effective standardized environmental monitoring device using the Raspberry-Pi (R-Pi) single-board computer. The system was designed using Python Programming language and can be controlled and accessed remotely through an Internet of Things platform. It takes information about the surrounding environment through sensors and uploads it directly to the internet, where it can be accessed anytime and anywhere through internet. Experimental results demonstrated that the system is able to accurately measure: temperature, humidity, light level and concentrations of the carbon monoxide harmful air pollutant. It's also designed to detect earthquakes through an assembled seismic sensor.

TL;DR: An Internet of things (IOT) based wireless sensor system, solely using wireless accelerometers, is developed for traffic volume and vehicle classification monitoring and indicates that the system is capable of reliably detecting axles and calculating axle spacing in both laboratory and field tests.
Abstract: An Internet of things (IOT) based wireless sensor system, solely using wireless accelerometers, is developed for traffic volume and vehicle classification monitoring in this paper. A series of laboratory tests, field tests as well as numerical simulation were performed to validate the feasibility and accuracy of the monitoring system. Besides, in order to eliminate the impacts of noises in the output signals, an advanced algorithm is developed to analyze the test data. The findings based on the test results indicate that the system is capable of reliably detecting axles and calculating axle spacing in both laboratory and field tests. In addition, compared with the actual measurements, the numerical simulation further validates the feasibility of the integrated wireless sensor system for traffic information monitoring.

TL;DR: A wireless sensor network in internet of thing for environmental monitoring application that uses EPS8266 to send data directly to the internet, and uses Arduino and XBee 802.15.4 in multi hop wireless network.
Abstract: The idea of Internet of Things as a platform in smart campus has become increasingly popular. It requires an infrastructure comprised of communication networks, sensor nodes, and gateways to connect to the Internet. Each sensor node is responsible to collect data from the surrounding environment. This paper designs a wireless sensor network in internet of thing for environmental monitoring application. There are two scenarios design for this project. One uses EPS8266 to send data directly to the internet, and the other is to use Arduino and XBee 802.15.4 in multi hop wireless network. In the latter, data from several nodes are collected by an aggregator and send them to the gateway. The wireless communication between the nodes and aggregator is based on XBee 802.15.4 Radio. The XBee radios that connected to the nodes will act as a router, while another one that connected to the gateway act as coordinator. Arduino Wi-Fi shield with 802.11 standard is used to send the information to a web server. A web server based on Webrick with Ruby on Rails platform is built to display the measurement results.
