Communication Protocol for a Cyber-Physical System: Using Bluetooth, NFC and cloud

Abstract [en]

The focus of this thesis is to utilize many of today’s current technologies to design a communication protocol that allows different devices to be incorporated into a system that can facilitate the flow of information between a user and a world of digital data. The protocol will take advantage of individual benefits from NFC, Bluetooth and cloud computing in its design to make the underlying complexity as transparent to the user as possible. Some of the main problems, such as security and reliability, are discussed and how they are incorporated into the core design of the protocol. The protocol is then applied to a case study to see how it can be utilized to create an integrity preserving system for managing medical records in a healthcare environment. The results from the case study gives merit to guidelines provided by the protocol specifications, making a system implementation based on the protocol theoretically possible. A real system implementation is required to verify the results extracted from the case study.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats fokuserar på att använda många av dagens teknologier för att konstruera ett kommunikationsprotokoll som möjliggör för olika enheter att inkorporeras i ett system som underlättar informationsflödet mellan en användare och en värld av digital data. Protokollet utnyttjar olika individuella fördelar hos NFC, Bluetooth and molntjänster i dess design för att göra den underliggande komplexiteten så transparant som möjligt för användaren. Några av de främsta problemen, så som säkerhet och tillförlitlighet, diskuteras och hur de inkorporeras i hjärtat av protokollet. Protokollet appliceras sedan i en fallstudie för att se hur det kan användas för att skapa ett system för sjukjournaler som bevarar integriteten hos patienter. Resultatet från fallstudien pekar mot att de riktlinjer som gavs av protokollspecifikationerna fungerar för att göra en systemimplementation på en teoretisk nivå. En verklig systemimplementation skulle behövas för att verifiera de resultat som framgår ur fallstudien.
