IEEE 2016: RISE: Role-based Internet of Things Service Environment
Abstract—Internet of Things (IoT) devices are predicated to reach 50 billion by 2022. Therefore, the IoT device data is too large to be managed efficiently by the existing platforms. The IoT enables devices to sense surrounding situations and to perform certain motion by connecting them through the various internet protocols. We propose the Role-based IoT Service Environment (RISE). It assigns roles to each devices to provide complicated and diversified services in the decentralized manner. To separates data and control, the devices of RISE just send a data between collaborative devices to avoid privacy issues. Also, we propose the role binding to optimize devices without role confliction when new role is added.

Abstract: This paper presents examples of internet of things (IoT) applications that could enhance the management of tourism activities in South Africa. Although information and communication technologies (ICT) have been adopted in some aspects of the tourism industry, there is further room to enhance this functionality through the adoption of IoT technologies. The IoT technologies in this research have been categorised under wildlife monitoring and tracking, monitoring seas and waters, monitoring birds, plant species monitoring, tourist information services, hospitality services, tourism marketing and mountaineering and weather monitoring as identified from the South African Department of Tourism website. A literature review was conducted to identify IoT applications in tourism in the international arena that would apply in the South African environment. An architecture of a wildfire detection and alert system using IoT is given as an example. The question that this research answers therefore is, “What IoT technologies can be adopted to impact on South Africa’s tourism industry”.

Abstract- Home intrusion plays a role and requires a system to notify and activate homeowners to be alert and protect their home assets in time. HIVE is proposed for home intrusion detection and devised in three parts. First, sensor manager is composed of sensor manager acting as ZigBee coordinator communicating with ZigBee sensors and actuators. Three different sensor types are passive infrared for detecting motion, magnetic switch for opening/closing of door detection, and load cell for the weight gauge from pressing steps on the floor. Two actuators, composing of piezo alarm and LED, are activated by sensor manager. Second, Firebase is developed as cloud database and user authentication service. Third, an android application is deployed for end-user for monitoring, configuring, and being notified remotely. As a result, sensor and actuator modules can join the ZigBee network automatically. Sensor Manager sends updated sensors' and actuators' data to Firebase, consequently, home users can be notified intrusion events via the android application, and remotely configure events, sensors, and actuators anywhere anytime via the Internet. Therefore, this system can enhance security and safety for home assets.
Abstract—Tiny computers located in end-user premises are becoming popular as local servers for Internet of Things (IoT) and Fog computing services. These highly distributed servers that can host and distribute content and applications in a peer-to-peer (P2P) fashion are known as nano data centers (nDCs). Despite the growing popularity of nano servers, their energy consumption is not well-investigated. To study energy consumption of nDCs, we propose and use flow-based and time-based energy consumption models for shared and unshared network equipment, respectively. To apply and validate these models, a set of measurements and experiments are performed to compare energy consumption of a service provided by nDCs and centralized data centers (DCs). A number of findings emerge from our study, including the factors in the system design that allow nDCs to consume less energy than its centralized counterpart. These include the type of access network attached to nano servers and nano server’s time utilization (the ratio of the idle time to active time). Additionally, the type of applications running on nDCs and factors such as number of downloads, number of updates, and amount of pre-loaded copies of data influence the energy cost. Our results reveal that number of hops between a user and content has little impact in the total energy consumption compared to the above-mentioned factors. We show that nano servers in Fog computing can complement centralized DCs to serve certain applications, mostly IoT appli-cations for which the source of data is in end-user premises, and lead to energy saving if the applications (or a part of them) are off-loadable from centralized DCs and run on nDCs.
Abstract— The recent advancements in technology and the availability of the Internet make it possible to connect various devices that can communicate with each other and share data. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new concept that allows users to connect various sensors and smart devices to collect real-time data from the environment. However, it has been observed that a comprehensive platform is still missing in the e-Health and m-Health architectures to use smartphone sensors to sense and transmit important data related to a patient’s health. In this paper, our contribution is twofold. Firstly, we critically evaluate the existing literature, which discusses the effective ways to deploy IoT in the field of medical and smart health care. Secondly, we propose a new semantic model for patients’ e-Health. The proposed model named as ‘k-Healthcare’ makes use of 4 layers; the sensor layer, the network layer, the Internet layer and the services layer. All layers cooperate with each other effectively and efficiently to provide a platform for accessing patients’ health data using smart phones.
Abstract—Internet of Things (IoT) have emerged as a valuable, flexible, and interoperable network of devices, objects, items, and electronics. Fuelled by recent advances in networking, communi-cations, computation, software, and hardware technologies, IoT has stepped out of its infancy and is considered as the next breakthrough technology in transforming the Internet into a fully integrated Future Internet. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are utilized by IoT to collect, exchange, and deliver data remotely leveraging the potential of IoT in practical applications and services. However, delivering data remotely might be threatened by various and serious security attacks. This work focuses on developing a visual-assisted tool for exposing security threats in IP-enabled WSNs. The proposed tool, called EyeSim, is a human-interactive visual-based anomaly detection system that is capable of monitoring and promptly alerting for the presence of wormhole links. In addition, it is capable of indicating the malicious nodes that form the wormhole link. EyeSim may expose adversaries by conducting cognitive network data analysis based on dynamic routing information. The efficacy of EyeSim is assessed in terms of detection accuracy. The simulation results show that EyeSim has the capabilities to accurately detect multiple wormhole attacks in real-time.
