IOT Network Behaviours and Dependencies - Dr Richard Mortier

This project will initiate some baseline data gathering and primary analysis of the ways in which off-the-shelf IOT sensors are going to generate and distribute data, the services they will invoke, and the infrastructure dependencies that will thus be taken by deployment and use of such sensors and their supporting services.

Realising Digital Built Britain requires many sources of data to be created and used. Current trajectories suggest that a large set of such sources will arise from deployment of off-the-shelf IOT sensors in buildings and infrastructure at a range of scales. This project will initiate some baseline data gathering and primary analysis of the ways in which off-the-shelf IOT sensors are going to generate and distribute data, the services they will invoke, and the infrastructure dependencies that will thus be taken by deployment and use of such sensors and their supporting services.

A broad range of off-the-shelf sensors will be used, targeting particularly those that will be widely relevant, including environmental sensors (e.g., temperature, CO2 monitoring) and more socially sensitive sensors (e.g., video cameras). This will ensure understanding of both the data rates, data types, and the network infrastructure dependencies implicitly taken by the use of a range of different makes and models of off the shelf sensors, such as might be used to provide the necessary data sources for (particularly) BIM Levels 3 and 4.
