Research challenges in Measurement for Internet of Things systems
AbstractIn this paper, an overview of the research challenges in measurements for the design of Internet of Things (IoT) systems is proposed. To this end, a general architecture of an IoT system is presented, which is specialized according to two key requirements: the power supply capabilities of the infrastructure and the time delay constraints of the application. Guidelines for the design of an IoT system are summarized, and the measurement needs are highlighted. A review of the research contributions is given concerning three main measurement topics: (i) energy-aware data acquisition systems, (ii) localization of mobile IoT nodes, and (iii) precise synchronization protocols.
