Emerging Technologies: IoT, Big Data, and CPS with Sensory Systems

Description

The availability of uniquely addressable heterogeneous electronics (UAHE)—including sensors, actuators, smart devices, RFID tags, embedded computers, and mobile devices—is continuously growing day by day. From a networking perspective, the Internet of Things (IoT) relies on interconnected UAHE for creating a mesh of devices, producing information and building a worldwide network of real physical objects. In this context, the IoT presents a technology that enables loosely coupled decentralized systems to cooperate smart objects of autonomous physical-digital devices, augmented with sensing/actuating, processing, and networking capabilities.

On the other hand, the coupling between the IoT and the Big Data has become an essential component for extracting value from collected data. Big Data is one of the most important recent research challenges with a paradigm that relies on the collection of tremendous amount of data to support innovation in the upcoming decades. A dataset is considered as Big Data when it meets the four Vs requirements, namely, Volume, Variety, Velocity, and Value. The keystone of Big Data exploitation is to leverage the existing datasets to create new information and predict future happenings and to enrich the decision value chain. Accordingly, as the IoT continuously collects data about the surrounding living environments, it is considered as a prototypical example of Big Data and a great application area of Big Data Analytics.

Furthermore, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are emerging from the integration of embedded computing devices, smart objects, people, and physical environments, which is typically tied by a communication infrastructure. So, the design of CPS and the implementation of their applications need to rely on IoT-enabled architectures and protocols that, both locally and globally, enable collecting, managing, and processing large datasets and support complex processes to manage and control such systems. Thus, as a matter of fact, the large-scale nature of IoT-based CPS can be effectively and efficiently facilitated and supported via utilizing the Cloud Computing infrastructures and platforms for providing flexible and extensive computational power, resource virtualization, and high-capacity storage for data streams in addition to ensuring safety, security, and privacy.

The goal of this special issue is to highlight and address the advances and challenges as well as providing insights and solutions to open issues associated with the concepts of IoT, Big Data, and CPS with focusing on sensors and sensory systems.
