Nowadays, sensors inserted in mobile applications are used for gathering data for an explicit assignment that can effectively save cost and time in crowd sensing networks (CSNs). The true value and essence of gathered statistics depend on the participation level from all the members of a CSN, i.e., service providers, data collectors, and service co...

The Internet of Things (IoT) industry is growing very fast to transform factories, homes and farms to make them automatic and efficient. In the past, IoT is applied in different resilient scenarios and applications. IoT faces a lot of challenges due to the lack of computational power, battery and storage resources. Fortunately, the rise of blockcha...
Chapter
Crowd Sensing Network (CSN) uses sensor embedded mobile phones for the collection of data for some specific task which can effectively save cost and time. The quality of collected data depends on the participation level from all entities of CSN, i.e., service provider, service consumers and data collectors. In comparison with the centralized tradit...
Chapter
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network of nodes connected through a wireless channel. The sensor nodes in the network are resource constrained in terms of energy, storage and computational power. Node failure is a common phenomenon, which occurs due to environmental factors, adversary attacks, draining of battery power, etc. After node failure,...

Short term electricity load and price accurate fore-casting are the key areas that need to be addressed in Smart Grids (SG). In this paper, a new model is proposed for accurate short term forecasting of load and price. First, irrelevant features are removed using Recursive Feature Elimination (RFE) and Decision Tree Regressor (DTR). Then, further d...

The communication between the Internet of Things (IoT) devices is not secure and reliable. A large number of security risks are involved. The existing security mechanisms are not easy to manage because they require extra resources and thus, increases the overall cost of the system. The IoT devices are resource-limited devices and they do not perfor...

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are vulnerable to faults because of their deployment in unpredictable and hazardous environments. This makes WSN prone to failure such as software, hardware, and communication failures. Due to the sensor’s limited resources and diverse deployment fields, fault detection in WSNs has become a daunting task. To solve th...

... Thus, putting a lot of demand on a central server is compared to the distributed nature of blockchain, which reduces the areas of vulnerability and also improves the distribution of resources. Figures 12 and 13 illustrate a comparison of the proposed system in terms of registration time and processing overhead with three existing ones, namely PrivCrowd: A Secure Blockchain-Based Crowdsourcing Framework with Fine-Grained Worker Selection [40], CrowdR-FBC: A Distributed Fog-Blockchains for Mobile Crowdsourcing Reputation Management [41] and An Incentive and Reputation Mechanism Based on Blockchain for Crowd Sensing Network [35]. For starters, the proposed system is analyzed for its typical registration times. ...

Because of the sensibility of the sent information from the WSN nodes [11], it is necessary to protect any piece of data using a Blockchain-based solution in order to produce better results and to prevent attacks such as selfish mining and Denial of Service attacks [12]. A blockchain-based solution is suggested in [4] [13] [14] [15] by the authors for large-scale IoT devices. Software-Defined Network (SDN) is used for making decisions and flexibility of attacks by constructing smart contracts using Ethereum technology in a wide range of networks and Blockchain. ...

... Other studies utilizing blockchain for MCS work in a loosely coupled fashion, where the blockchain network is used to facilitate some specific MCS procedure(s) as an independent function module rather than acting as the distributed MCS platform. In [27], [28], blockchain was adopted to evaluate or verify the submissions from workers so as to eliminate their malicious behaviors and resist information tampering. Jia et al. [29] designed a blockchain-powered confusion mechanism to hide the real locations of workers in MCS. ...
