—The number of small embedded devices connected to the Internet is increasing. This growth is mostly due to the large number of Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, with applications such as: industrial monitoring, home automation, and others. One common aspect with the majority of application areas is the lack of mobility. Most IoT devices are stationary(More)
—A performance evaluation of a level-crossing analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is presented. It is shown that its signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) does not depend on the input-signal amplitude, which results in an almost-flat SNR for amplitudes that fall into the Nyquist criteria for irregular sampling. The influence of the reconstruction procedure on SNR is(More)
—Data collection has always been a major challenge in sensor networks and various techniques have been proposed to enable efficient data collection. One such methodology is the use of mobile elements within the existing infrastructure to enable data collection. The paper proposes the use of existing mobile elements like mobile phones which have enough spare(More)
This paper describes a system where Internet-enabled sensor technology was integrated into a context-aware platform to give viewers of sport events an enriched media experience. The system was developed as a proof of concept and was evaluated during real-life use at the Vasaloppet crosscountry ski event. Using Bluetooth wireless ad-hoc networking and GPRS(More)
— TCP/IP has recently taken promising steps toward being a viable communication architecture for networked sensor nodes. Furthermore, the use of Bluetooth can enable a wide range of new applications, and in this article, an overview of the performance and characteristics of a networked sensor node based on TCP/IP and Bluetooth is presented. The number of(More)
— Wireless sensor nodes are a versatile, general-purpose technology capable of measuring, monitoring and controlling their environment. Even though sensor nodes are becoming ever smaller and more power efficient, there is one area that is not yet fully addressed; Power Supply Units (PSUs). Standard solutions that are efficient enough for electronic devices(More)
Developing and deploying Web applications on networked embedded devices is often seen as a way to reduce the development cost and time to market for new target platforms. However, the size of the messages and the processing requirements of today's Web protocols, such as HTTP and XML, are challenging for the most resource-constrained class of devices that(More)
—In 2011 Ericsson and Cisco estimated 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020, encouraged by this industry is developing application frameworks to scale the Internet of Things. This paper presents a survey of commercial frameworks and platforms designed for developing and running Internet of Things applications. The survey covers frameworks supported(More)
