Enabling the Next Generation of IoT-enhanced Smart Communities
Buildings, homes and other spaces are becoming smarter and interconnected with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and their supported technologies. Current IoT-enhanced ecosystems include IoT devices to sense physical phenomena, data exchange systems to collect, process and exchange data between devices (sensors/actuators), and IoT applications that provide services to improve, among others, life quality and public safety. While such applications can leverage Edge-based infrastructures to exchange data, IoT ecosystems need to dynamically evolve over time due to additional IoT sources/recipients, new IoT applications, workload spikes, failing nodes and lossy network channels. In this talk, I will present PrioDeX, a middleware-based solution for prioritized data exchange during emergency response situations, as well as the TIPPERS real deployment at the University of California Irvine. In addition, I will describe my ongoing and future research agenda that is related to the next generation of IoT systems for smart communities. In particular, I will provide an overview of the following research directions: (i) AI planning-enabled smart spaces for optimized data exchange; (ii) publish/subscribe federation for wide-spread IoT applications; and (iii) IoT planning for infrastructure placement.
