IEEE IoT Newsletter - July 2018


Article 1

In IoT We Trust?

Jeff Voas, Rick Kuhn, and Phil Laplante

No! IoT is an acronym comprised of three letters: (I), (o), and (T). But the Internet (I) has never been highly associated with the term ‘trust.’


Article 2

OrganiCity: Using IoT to Enable Experimentation-as-a-Service in Smart Cities

Georgios Mylonas, Dimitrios Amaxilatis, Luis Diez, Lasse Vestergaard, Etienne Gandrille and Martin Brynskov

Smart cities are evolving into an exciting application test field for a number of science disciplines. As such, there is growing interest from service providers and stakeholders to integrate additional dimensions into current smart city implementations, in order to form the future smart city solutions.


Article 3Divide-and-Conquer: How Edge Processing Will Open a New Door for IoT Applications

Sergio Flores

It comes as no surprise to anyone in the IoT industry that we are reaching a point where continued innovation will not be possible without making fundamental changes to the approach we use to process information.


Article 4Rentable Internet of Things Infrastructure for Sensing as a Service (S2aaS)

Charith Perera

Sensing as a Service (S2aaS) model [1] [2] is inspired by the traditional Everything as a service (XaaS) approaches [3]. It aims to better utilize the existing Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. S2aaS vision aims to create ‘rentable infrastructure’ where interested parties can gather IoT data by paying a fee for the infrastructure owners.
