Article
Nowadays, several Internet of Things (IoT) deployments use publish-subscribe paradigms to disseminate IoT data to a pool of interested consumers. At the moment, the most widespread standard for such scenarios is MQTT. We also register an increasing interest in IoT-enabled Location-Based Services, where data must be disseminated over a target area a...

The Web of Things (WoT) paradigm was proposed first in the late 2000s, with the idea of leveraging Web standards to interconnect all types of embedded devices. More than ten years later, the fragmentation of the IoT landscape has dramatically increased as a consequence of the exponential growth of connected devices, making interoperability one of t...
Conference Paper
The rapid and exponential growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been generating a new breed of technologies that introduce several different protocols and interfaces. The Web of Things (WoT) architecture stands out as an emerging and potential solution to improve interoperability across IoT platforms by describing well-defined software interfa...
Conference Paper
The chaotic growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) determined a fragmented landscape with a huge number of devices, technologies and platforms available on the market, and consequential issues of interoperability on many system deployments. The recent W3C Web of Things (WoT) standards aimed to ease the deployment of heterogeneous systems by introdu...

The Web of Things (WoT) standard recently promoted by the W3C constitutes a promising approach to devise interoperable IoT systems able to cope with the heterogeneity of software platforms and devices. The WoT architecture envisages interconnected IoT scenarios characterized by a multitude of Web Things (WTs) that interact according to well-defined...
Article
The deployment of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems is a natively interdisciplinary task that involves joint research contributions from sensing technologies, data science and civil engineering. The capability to assess, also from remote stations, the working conditions of industrial plants or the structural integrity of civil buildings is...
Article
The rapid development of mobile officing applications promotes generation of large amount of Human Resource (HR) management data. This kind of mobile big data makes the traditional network architecture difficult to handle. Information centric networking (ICN) is a kind of network system which supports mobility naturally. It routes data by content n...
Conference Paper
The IoT is spreading heavily around us and many new standard at different architectural layers proliferate. This creates a heavy interoperability gap that many architectural proposals and new standards have tried to cope with over the years. In particular, we take into account the Arrowhead interoperability Framework, a powerful and promising parad...

Chapter
In Industry 4.0 scenarios, novel applications are enabled by the capability to gather large amount of data from pervasive sensors and to process them in order to devise the “digital twin” of a physical equipment. The heterogeneity of hardware sensors, communication protocols and data formats constitutes one of the main challenge toward the large-sc...
Article
Smartphone devices can play a key role on emergency scenarios thanks to their pervasiveness, and the possibility to convey emergency requests from the involved people to the rescue teams. At the same time, the effective utilization of such devices on critical scenarios with limited mobile Internet access is challenging. As an alternative, several r...
Conference Paper
Proximity advertising, smart parking and tourism are just examples of use-cases of location-based services that have become extremely popular in the last few years, also thanks to the pervasive diffusion of GNSS-enabled mobile devices. These devices, however, are not able guarantee adequate accuracy in indoor scenarios, that represent the actual f...
Conference Paper
In the next few years, the W3C Web of Things (WoT) platform will represent a reference solution toward the deployment of fully interoperable systems, hence unlocking the potential of the IoT paradigm on several use-cases characterized by the current fragmentation of devices and technologies. At the same time, the worlwide adoption of the W3C WoT ar...

Linked Open Data (LOD) is the publicly available RDF data in the Web. Each LOD entity is identfied by a URI and accessible via HTTP. LOD encodes globalscale knowledge potentially available to any human as well as artificial intelligence that may want to benefit from it as background knowledge for supporting their tasks. LOD has emerged as the backb...
Conference Paper
Accurate indoor localization constitutes a challenging yet fundamental research problem towards the large-scale deployment of next-generation mobile indoor location-based services. This paper addresses two key issues of indoor localization: (i) how to take benefit of the presence of inertial sensors, short-range and long-range radio interfaces on m...
Conference Paper
During the occurrence of an emergency, being it the consequence of a natural disaster or of human activities, the pervasiveness of user-owned mobile devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets) turns into a precious help to convey data and services to all the people involved. As a result, several emergency-related mobile applications have been proposed on t...

The Internet of Things (IoTs) is growing fast both in terms of number of devices connected and of complexity of deployments and applications. Several research studies analyzing the economical impact of the IoT worldwide identify the interoperability as one of the main boosting factor for its growth, thanks to the possibility to unlock novel commerc...
Chapter
In the era of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) several kinds of applications were born to make use of these autonomous vehicles, from surveillance to emergency management, from entertainment to package delivery. All these systems are based on the autonomous capability of the unmanned vehicles. The common factor of such systems is the use of an a...

IEEE Railway RoSe 2018 The 1st International Workshop on Robots and Sensors Networks for Railway Systems Organized in conjunction with IEEE PIMRC 2018 http://railwayrose2018.nws.cs.unibo.it/ September 9, 2018 Bologna, Italy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: May 18, 2018 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wireless Sensors and Actuators Networks constitute one of the staples of Railroad’s Infrastructure and Rolling Stock management. With the distances, environments and costs involved in the domain, a remote and reliable surveying is the ever-present objective of all the actors in the industry. The autonomous cooperative systems, made of highly mobile self-organizing robots, may survey tracks and stations, increase operators’ security in maintenance interventions and scout for sudden obstacles in long and isolated tracks. Such applications foresee technological advancements that consider the fields of both Ad-Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensors and Actuators Networks. As the objectives are different from purely civilian or end-user applications, the beneficial possibilities are endless. At the same time, the challenges are as high as the stakes. Whether the innovation comes from 5G COTS or from breakthrough independent solutions, for railway operations, the networking part of the system has to show higher levels of reliability, compared to the end-user domain, as well as increased capabilities. Railway RoSe aims at bringing together state-of-the-art contributions on the design, specification and implementation of architectures, algorithms and protocols for current and future applications of such systems, having special consideration for nature-inspired, machine-learning based techniques and data-driven approaches for network architecture, protocol design and system optimization.
