Wireless sensor networks (WSNs), consisting of a large number of nodes to detect ambient environment, are widely deployed in a predefined area to provide more sophisticated sensing, communication, and processing capabilities, especially concerning the maintenance when hundreds or thousands of nodes are required to be deployed over wide areas at the same(More)
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are considered a key instrument to improve efficiency and flexibility of industrial processes. This paper provides an experience report about the application of an ICT-based approach, derived from the Internet-of-Things (IoT) concept, to logistics in industrial manufacturing environments, aimed at enhancing(More)
The aim of this work is to investigate and define a dynamically adjustable security method, suitable especially for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), usually composed by resource constrained devices. In order to support both the high level of security and the need for long lifetime of battery powered wireless devices, flexible means to adjust the level of(More)
The diffusion of the Internet of Things paradigm, in the last few years, has led to the need of deploying and managing large-scale Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), composed by a multitude of geographically distributed sensors, like the ones needed for Smart City applications. The traditional way to manage WSNs is not suitable for this type of applications,(More)
—The computing technology ecosystem is today facing with the Internet of Things (IoT) innovation, driven by radical technological and methodological changes, which include communications paradigms among devices as well as instruments to enable the creation of added-value services on top of them. Although a number of platforms are today available to address(More)
