Air Particle Matter Pollution Assessment: Applying IoT and DLT Technologies to High Volume Air Samplers

Diego Suárez-Bagnasco

Aerosols are fine solid particles (particulate matter, PM) or liquid droplets in gas (usually air), whose origin can be natural or anthropogenic. Air PM pollution exposure is linked to diverse human health problems and also to many environmental effects. People living in urban environments are potentially more exposed to polluted air.

Blockchain-enabled Edge Analytics for a Mobile Universal Biotesting Station

Sergii Kushch, Martin Hayes and Eoin O’Connell

The impact of COVID-19 on manufacturing, educational, and a varied assortment of locations has been immense. The use case described below proposes a Blockchain-enabled infrastructure for deployment on an edge gateway to secure a universal biotesting station that is capable of processing sensitive personal biodata at scale. The unit can be deployed for access to a health center, manufacturing facility, or a Higher Education laboratory facility.


Article 3Adoption of Real-Time Machine Learning for Cyber Risk Assessment in IoT Environments

Mohamed Rahouti and Moussa Ayyash

The Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged in the past as Internet extension and significantly changed our world. A tremendous amount of IoT applications has highly eased people’s daily lives and improved resource usage and allocation, e.g., power bank sharing, bike sharing, etc. However, the ingrained openness of underlying wireless systems renders these IoT entities vulnerable to a broad range of cyber risks, e.g., vulnerabilities of spectrum that can be a source of adversarial inference.


Article 4New Generation Alternative Sensors for IoT

Euclides Lourenço Chuma

The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices and mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Many types of sensors are used in IoT for various applications, such as measuring temperature, humidity, pressure, acceleration, proximity, etc. However, a new generation of alternative sensors is being developed, which can be connected to IoT so that they are used in the creation of autonomous vehicles, in health monitoring, and other research areas.
