Synchronous Flooding (SF) protocols can enhance the wireless connectivity between Internet of Things (IoT) devices. However, existing SF solutions fail to introduce sufficient security measures due to strict time synchronisation requirements, making them vulnerable to malicious actions. Our paper presents a design paradigm for encrypted SF communic...

Haptic teleoperation is typically realized through wired networking technologies (e.g., Ethernet) which guarantee performance of control loops closed over the communication medium, particularly in terms of latency, jitter, and reliability. This demonstration shows the capability of conducting haptic teleoperation over a novel low-power wireless con...

Internet of Things (IoT) networks require regular firmware updates to ensure enhanced security and stability. As we move towards methodologies of codifying security and policy decisions and exchanging them over IoT large-scale deployments (security-as-a-code), these demands should be considered a routine operation. However, rolling out firmware upd...

High-performance real-time wireless connectivity is at the heart of the Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT). Realizing wireless closed-loop control is crucial for various mission-critical IIoT systems. Existing wireless technologies fall short of meeting the stringent performance requirements of closed-loop control. This paper presents a novel wir...
Patent
A method of generating a communication schedule for a plurality of nodes in a multi-hop network, the plurality of nodes comprising a first node, a second node and a third node, wherein: the second node is a primary parent of the first node and the third node is a secondary parent of the first node. The method comprises requesting, by the first node...

Localization accuracy varies significantly across multiple radio and optical technologies. The choice of which technology is a best-fit for a particular application is not only based on the accuracy alone but also on other factors including the cost, availability of the technology in commodity hardware such as mobile phones, and the need to have a...
Conference Paper
Various legacy and emerging industrial applications require closed-loop control over multiple hops. Existing multi-hop wireless technologies do not completely fulfill the stringent requirements of closed-loop control. This paper proposes a novel wireless solution, termed as GALLOP, for closed-loop control over multi-hop networks. GALLOP adopts a pr...

High accuracy localisation technologies exist but are prohibitively expensive to deploy for large indoor spaces such as warehouses, factories, and supermarkets to track assets and people. However, these technologies can be used to lend their highly accurate localisation capabilities to low-cost, commodity, and less-accurate technologies. In this pa...

The adoption of software defined networking (SDN) within traditional networks has provided operators the ability to manage diverse resources and easily reconfigure networks as requirements change. Recent research has extended this concept to IEEE 802.15.4 low-power wireless networks, which form a key component of the Internet of Things (IoT). Howev...

In wireless sensors and actuator networks, different data sources such as sensors are often required to report data to different destinations such as actuators. In this paper, we ask if the destination diversity, presence of multiple destinations, can enable multiple successful receptions when the sensors transmit their distinctly different data pa...
