Decentralized Socio-technical Services and Applications for the Internet of Things - A Testbed Self-Integration

  title={Decentralized Socio-technical Services and Applications for the Internet of Things - A Testbed Self-Integration},
  author={Farzam Fanitabasi and Edward Gaere and Evangelos Pournaras},
The Internet of Things comes along with new challenges for experimenting, testing, and operating decentralized socio-technical systems at large-scale. In such systems autonomous agents interact locally with their users and remotely with other agents, to make intelligent collective choices, via which they self-regulate the consumption and production of distributed resources. For instance, self-management of traffic flows in Smart Cities. While such complex systems are usually deployed and…

Self-Healing Dilemmas in Distributed Systems: Fault Correction vs. Fault Tolerance

A novel and general-purpose modeling of fault scenarios that can accurately measure and predict inconsistencies generated by fault-correction and fault-tolerance when each node in a network can monitor the health status of another node, while both can defect is introduced.

Decentralized workflow management on software defined infrastructures

This work reviews the emerging trends in the data-intensive workflow applications, in particular the potential challenges and opportunities enabled by the decentralized application paradigm.



Embedding Internet-of-Things in Large-Scale Socio-technical Systems: A Community-Oriented Design in Future Smart Grids

This chapter reviews the literature and presents the experience of adopting an ST approach to the design of a community-oriented smart grid application, and provides a set of lessons learned derived from this experience that are also deemed relevant to thedesign of other smart urban ecosystems.

SmartCampus: A user-centric testbed for Internet of Things experimentation

This paper presents SmartCampus, a user centric experimental research facility for IoT technologies that deeply embeds heterogeneous IoT devices as a programmable experimentation substrate in a real life office environment and makes flexible experimentation with real end users possible.

iSapiens: A platform for social and pervasive smart environments

iSapiens allows the creation of pervasive smart environments by exploiting the edge computing paradigm, that makes locally available distributed storage and computational resources without introducing latency and causing bandwidth shortage.

Engineering Democratization in Internet of Things Data Analytics

This paper illustrates an alternative data analytics approach that relies on participatory citizens to contribute Internet of Things data and crowdsourced computational resources in order to compute aggregation functions in a collective fashion.

Lysis: A Platform for IoT Distributed Applications Over Socially Connected Objects

This paper presents Lysis, which is a cloud-based platform for the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and presents a use-case that illustrates the implementation choices and the use of the Lysis features.

Agent-based Internet of Things: State-of-the-art and research challenges

Agent-Oriented Cooperative Smart Objects: From IoT System Design to Implementation

The agent-oriented approach is specifically based on the agent-based cooperating smart object (ACOSO) methodology and on the related ACOSO middleware: they provide effective agent design and programming models along with efficient tools for the actual construction of an IoT system in terms of a multiagent system.

IoTbed: A Generic Architecture for Testbed as a Service for Internet of Things-Based Systems

IoTbed presents an economic model that offers monetary incentives to the device owners for using their devices in the testbed experiments and it is posited that such an incentive model will encourage more testbed providers to rent out their smart devices through IoTbed.
