Ultra low power communication mechanisms are essential for future Internet of Things deployments. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is one promising candidate for such deployments. We study the energy consumption of BLE by measuring real devices with a power monitor and derive models of the basic energy consumption behavior observed from the measurement results.(More)
SUMMARY The development of Internet of Things (IoT) applications can be facilitated by encoding the meaning of the data in the messages sent by IoT nodes, but the constrained resources of these nodes challenge the common Semantic Web solutions for doing this. In this article, we examine enabling technologies for adding semantics to the IoT. Especially, we(More)
The next wave driving the expansion of the Internet will come from the Internet of Things. Bluetooth LE is a rapidly emerging ultra-low-power radio technology expected to be incorporated in billions of IoT devices in the next few years. Consequently, it is particularly important to specify Internet connectivity solutions for Bluetooth LE. In this article we(More)
Energy efficiency is of critical importance in future wireless communication systems where networked low-power devices relying on batteries should be able to communicate transparently. We present a novel cross-layer energy-adaptive scheduling and queue management framework EAED (Energy Aware Early Detection) for minimizing energy consumption in WLAN mesh(More)
In this paper we show the first working implementation of an adaptive, measurement-based scheduling algorithm called delay-bounded hybrid proportional delay (DBHPD) in a FreeBSD based ALTQ prototype router. We describe how we have implemented DBHPD and discuss what kind of difficulties were encountered in the implementation. We present measurement results(More)
