Home automation using edge computing and Internet of Things

  title={Home automation using edge computing and Internet of Things},
  author={Tanmay Chakraborty and Soumya Kanti Datta},
  journal={2017 IEEE International Symposium on Consumer Electronics (ISCE)},
The current smart home ecosystem is fragmented due to competing IoT standards, heterogeneous devices and non-interoperability of home automation solutions. This paper proposes a harmonized and interoperable home automation solutions exploiting the concepts of Edge Computing, Virtual IoT Devices (VID) and the Internet of Things (IoT). We present a smart home architecture, prototype and its application in an use case. Our efforts establish the prototype as a lightweight and secure solution for…
