Predictions of the unexpected – deploying IoT applications in the wild

Abstract: IoT networks are increasingly used for critical
applications. For example, they are used for smart cities, healthcare
or to automate factories. In these scenarios, we depend on their
availability and reliable operation. To design an application such
that it always functions as intended it is necessary to accurately
predict all conditions the system might be exposed to. A good
prediction is necessary to minimise resources (devices,
infrastructure, …). This has proven to be a challenge. An IoT system
is large-scale and is exposed to a variety of conditions. A large
number of people interact with the system (users, operators) and it is
used for many many years. In this talk, I report on my experience with
making predictions regarding the operational circumstances a network
is exposed to. I will discuss how factors such as regulations and
business choices influence network design. I will describe how the
deployment of multiple networks in the same physical space impacts on
network behaviour. Finally, I will discuss the impact of environmental
properties such as RF and temperature on network performance.

About: Professor Utz Roedig is Full Professor of Computer Science at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland. Before moving to Cork he was Professor at Lancaster University, UK, where he led the Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR). Prior to his work in Lancaster he held research positions at UCC and Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany. He holds a Dr.-Ing and Dipl.-Ing from Darmstadt University of Technology. His research interests are computer networks and security and he has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers in this field. His research collaborations with industry partners has resulted in several patents. Over the last number of years his research has been supported by a number of research grants funded by EU, EPSRC and Industry. He frequently serves as TPC member of international conferences such as DCOSS, EWSN, IPSN, and he is a grant reviewer for international funding bodies such as EPSRC (UK), ESF (EU) and FWO (Belgium).
