Article 1

Artificial Intelligence Enabled Distributed Edge Computing for Internet of Things

Ali Balador, Sima Sinaei, Mats Pettersson, and Ilhan Kaya

In recent years, technological developments in consumer electronics and industrial applications have advanced rapidly. As a result, more and smaller networked devices can collect and process data anywhere. This Internet of Things (IoT) is a revolutionary change for many sectors like building, automotive, digital industry, energy, healthcare. As a result, the amount of data generated at the Edge level has increased dramatically, resulting in higher network bandwidth requirements. In the meantime, with the emergence of novel applications, such as automated driving, lower network latency is required.


Article 2

An IoT-based Real-time Management of Energy Consumption

Rita Lourinho, Augusto Casaca, Mário Nunes, Nicole Feliciano, and José Botelho

Águas do Tejo Atlântico (AdTA) is a major company operating in the environmental sector in Portugal. Its mission is to manage and operate the wastewater system of the Great Lisbon and West of Great Lisbon, guaranteeing the quality, continuity, and efficiency of the water public services. AdTA operates several Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRF). These facilities treat municipal wastewater and recover sub-products, such as bio-solids and energy. Energy consumption is the second-highest operating cost at a WRRF after labor; it can be about 50% of a utility´s total operating costs.


Article 3Using an IoT Meta-model & Service Level Agreements to Support Automated Port Operations

Cathryn Peoples, Adrian Moore, and Nektarios Georgalas

The maritime industry is a critical component in international supply chains. However, it is highly sensitive to and dependent upon external factors, so much so that in 2018, a new maritime industry was observed to be evolving.
