Huansheng Ning, Hong Liu
Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2012.21001
Abstract: As the Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as an attractive paradigm, a typical IoT architecture that U2IoT (Unit IoT and Ubiquitous IoT) model has been presented for the future IoT. Based on the U2IoT model, this paper proposes a cyber-physical-social based security architecture (IPM) to deal with Information, Physical, and Management security perspectives, and presents how the architectural abstractions support U2IoT model. In particular, 1) an information security model is established to describe the mapping relations among U2IoT, security layer, and security requirement, in which social layer and additional intelligence and compatibility properties are infused into IPM; 2) physical security referring to the external context and inherent infrastructure are inspired by artificial immune algorithms; 3) recommended security strategies are suggested for social management control. The proposed IPM combining the cyber world, physical world and human social provides constructive proposal towards the future IoT security and privacy protection.

Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2018.84004
Abstract: Nowadays, many different kinds of delivery companies transport their own kinds of parcels and offer their own services, which have caused a lot waste of resources. In addition, the volume of parcels in all cities that need to be delivered has been grown dramatically. To cope with these problems, a uniform parcel delivery system in a smart city which can offer service to all kinds of customers in the city including manufactures, department stores, restaurants, individual people and so forth was designed. This system uses IoT (Internet of Things) and RFID technology, combining computer network technology, wireless communication and cloud computing. With this system, the whole package delivery process including classification of packages, vehicle scheduling, path planning, transportation monitoring can be intellectualized as well as managed automatically, and the use of both material resources and manpower resources can be reduced accordingly.

Deze Zeng,Song Guo,Zixue Cheng
Journal of Communications , 2011, DOI: 10.4304/jcm.6.6.424-438
Abstract: In the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT), an increasing number of embedded devices of all sorts (e.g., sensors, mobile phones, cameras, smart meters, smart cars, traffic lights, smart home appliances, etc.) are now capable of communicating and sharing data over the Internet. Although the concept of using embedded systems to control devices, tools and appliances has been proposed for almost decades now, with every new generation, the ever-increasing capabilities of computation and communication pose new opportunities, but also new challenges. As IoT becomes an active research area, different methods from various points of view have been explored to promote the development and popularity of IoT. One trend is viewing IoT as Web of Things (WoT) where the open Web standards are supported for information sharing and device interoperation. By penetrating smart things into existing Web, the conventional web services are enriched with physical world services. This WoT vision enables a new way of narrowing the barrier between virtual and physical worlds.In this paper, we elaborate the architecture and some key enabling technologies of WoT. Some pioneer open platforms and prototypes are also illustrated. The most recent research results are carefully summarized. Furthermore, many systematic comparisons are made to provide the insight in the evolution and future of WoT. Finally, we point out some open challenging issues that shall be faced and tackled by research community.
The Potential of Internet of Things to Improve the Quality of Healthcare Delivery
Cristina TURCU,Cornel TURCU,,Doru TILIU?E
Journal of Applied Computer Science & Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is gaining significant momentum for tracking and tracing patients. The existing solutions for patient traceability are mostly centralized and closed-loop (effective only in small-scale RFID tracking applications). Lately, there has been a tendency to tag surrounding physical objects and to adopt various solutions that enable them to communicate with one another and with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems. This leads to a new concept named the Internet of Things (IoT), in which objects are associated with useful digital information. IoT can bring multiple benefits to healthcare through the use of information from distributed resources such as dedicated devices, RFID tags, sensors/detectors, intelligent equipment, etc. IoT is likely to have impact on many applications in healthcare subfields such as, elderly and patient care, medical supply chain, logistic, asset management, drug counterfeit detection, etc. This paper deals with aspects related to technologies used in healthcare, and with the various challenges healthcare faces during transition from RFID to IoT.
The Future Potential of Internet of Things
Aelita Skar?auskien?,Marius Kalinauskas
Social Technologies , 2012,
Abstract: Purpose: To define the Internet of things and to analyze it as a background for the internet of services.Design/methodology/approach: The article discusses potential possibilities and problematic issues concerning the Internet of things (IoT) and Internet of services (IoS). The debates concerning IoT and its possible application fields have continued for more than ten years. The technological background is there and the fields of application are broad. However, there is still a lack of understanding about the possible benefits that technology could give to various bodies if applied correctly. This article is based on comparison and analysis of scientific articles, research papers and case studies related to the potential for IoT and its implementation in IoS.Theoretical findings: IoT is a logical evolutionary step for the internet. Despite the technological background, the concept of objects which are aware of their surroundings, allow to manipulate them by defining different rule patterns and ensuring interaction possibilities with other objects or human beings. The necessity for web-based services is increasing along with the technological gadgets which support them. Applying things, which are connected in a network, could revolutionize many industry and service sectors and create new service provision and administration methods based on information technology. However, there are many problematic issues and research challenges related to the IoT. Few of the most significant are related to standardization of technology, legal regulation and ethical aspects concerning the IoT technology.Research limitations/implications: The IoT is a popular trend promoted by the business sector and governmental bodies. There are few comprehensive studies and projects which talk about the benefits that business and society could gain from the IoT. There is a lot less information about the possible risk and problematic aspects, and a lack of agreements between the developers of technologies. In the scientific community arguments are also varied depending on the technologies used and regulation models adopted. For that reason it is possible to review the topics only focusing on narrow, but most comprehensively analyzed spectrum of problematic issues.Practical implications: Theoretical framework for future research in the field was developed.Keywords: internet of things, internet of services, future internet.Research type: conceptual paper.

Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2010.38088
Abstract: With the rapid development of the embedded technology, research and implement of the Internet of things will be a new technology revolution, yet the implement of the Internet of things is on the base of the communication between the things. For this reason, realizing the function of communication between singlechip is particularly important. Based on the characteristics of the embedded microcontroller, we analyzed the traditional PC TCP/IP protocol, and appropriately tailored TCP/IP protocol cluster on the basis of the characteristics of embedded singlechip. At last, we realized the reduced TCP/IP protocol cluster suitable for embedded singlechip, on AVR singlechip platform.

Engineering (ENG) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2011.312153
Abstract: Internet of Things (IOT) is a conceptual vision to connect things in order to create a ubiquitous computing world. In order to create such an ever-present network, a simple, reliable, and cost-effective technology is crucial. Wireless sensor network (WSN) is an important wireless technology that has wide variety of applications and provides unlimited future potentials for IOT. Since WSNs in IOT will be used in varying and challenging applications and environments, reliability and reliability testing of WSN hardware becomes extremely important. In accelerated reliability testing, test stresses are increased to cut down the time required to obtain a weakening effect similar to one resulting from normal service conditions in the field. This paper introduces three common difficulties that engineers may experience in qualitative accelerated testing of WSN devices: 1. Challenges in use of standard accelerated tests, 2. Challenges in component-level testing, and 3. Challenges in testing of prototypes. The paper will also introduce examples from real life reliability research and accelerated tests to clarify the presented challenges.
