IOT Network Behaviours and Dependencies

November Paper in the CDBB Publication Series paper by Poonam Yadav, Qi Li and Richard Mortier, from the Department of Computer Science & Technology, University of Cambridge

The abstract for this paper is below:

To realise Digital Built Britain will require creation and use of many sources of digital data, particularly to achieve BIM levels 3 and 4. Many current claims suggest that many of these sources will arise from deployment of off-the-shelf Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors in buildings and infrastructure at scale. In this paper we take an early look at some baseline data gathered from a set of such sensors. We perform some simple analysis of the types and rates of data these sensors will generate and distribute, the supporting services they will invoke, and the resulting infrastructure dependencies they take. We consider a wide range of sensors from environmental sensors (e.g., temperature, CO2) to some more immediately sensitive sensors (e.g., video cameras).
