The initial vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) was of a world in which all physical objects are tagged and uniquelly identified by RFID transponders. However, the concept has grown into multiple dimensions, encompassing sensor networks able to provide real-world intelligence and goal-oriented collaboration of distributed smart objects via local networks(More)
In this paper, we describe an approach to providing adaptivity in e-education courses. The primary goal of the paper is to enhance an existing e-education system, namely Moodle LMS, by developing a method for creating adaptive courses, and to compare its effectiveness with non-adaptive education approach. First, we defined the basic requirements of a course(More)
Understanding the machine-type communication (MTC) traffic is a key for designing and optimizing a network and the applicable QoS scheme capable of providing adequate communication services without compromising the conventional services such as data, voice, and video. In this paper, we propose a framework for traffic modeling, generation, and load(More)
Smart cities are nowadays expanding and flourishing worldwide with Internet of Things (IoT), i.e. smart things like sensors and actuators, and mobile devices applications and installations which change the citizens' and authorities' everyday life. Smart cities produce daily huge streams of sensors data while citizens interact with Web and/or mobile devices(More)
Internet of Things (IoT) domain has attracted a lot of interest over the last few years, to a large extent due to its applicability across a plethora of application domains. This variety of application domains resulted in a variety of requirements that IoT systems should comply with. Due to the heterogeneity of the domains, the requirements varied(More)
IoT6 is a research project on the future Internet of Things. It aims at exploiting the potential of IPv6 and related standards to overcome current shortcomings and fragmentation of the Internet of Things. The main challenges and objectives of IoT6 are to research, design and develop a highly scalable IPv6-based Service-Oriented Architecture to achieve(More)
The paper describes an approach to integration of physical and digital worlds through aggregation of Internet of Things (IoT) service with the Augmented Reality (AR) platform, AR Genie. The solution is generally applicable, but concretely in this paper the IoT service is provided by ekoNET platform which provides the environmental data through AR based(More)
