Embedded IoT Systems: Network, Platform, and Software

Description

The vision of Internet of Things (IoT) is coming close to reality, where physical world devices have a digital presence on the Internet. Recently, connected embedded devices are being placed everywhere in our everyday life, and tens of billion devices are expected to be connected to the Internet by 2020. However, despite the importance of IoT, there are still several technical challenges remaining before the next Internet revolution. One of the challenges is the lack of common platforms and networks. IoT devices need to speak the standard Internet Protocol for interoperability, and several new protocols have been designed at the IETF to bring IPv6 connectivity to the constrained battery-operated embedded devices. However, their adoption is slow due to complexity of the standards and inefficiencies in supporting diverse application scenarios. Another challenge is that modern IoT prototyping platforms, while gaining advantage on ease of use, flexibility, and relaxed resource constraints, fall short in terms of energy efficiency compared to the traditional wireless/mobile network platforms. Furthermore, low-power long-range radios that offer communication ranges in the order of tens of kilometers are gaining interest recently over short-range communication popular in traditional low-power embedded networks. However, their interaction with short-range technologies in terms of capacity, energy efficiency, and performance is not fully understood yet.

This special issue is intended to provide a forum for presenting, exchanging, and discussing the most recent advances in energy efficient embedded systems for IoT and contributing these advances to the research community. In particular, it will bring together leading researchers, industry professionals, and research students to study the embedded hardware platforms, network architecture, wireless protocols and their performances, long- and short-range radios, and application services under the umbrella of low-power embedded IoT while respecting backward compatibility and the Internet standards for ubiquitous connectivity.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Network protocols and architecture for low-power embedded IoT respecting backward compatibility and the Internet standards for ubiquitous Internet connectivity
  • Scalability and performance measurement on large-scale IoT network, preferably on real devices and/or testbeds with real Internet connectivity
  • Low-power hardware/software platforms for battery-operated IoT devices that can last several months to years like traditional WSN platforms
  • Energy efficient long-range radio for IoT and their coexistence/comparison to short-range radios
  • Design and implementation of real IoT testbeds that can fuel IoT research beyond simulations
  • Real-world IoT-based applications, services, and clinical studies
