    Automatic sensor clustering: connectivity for the internet of things2011Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Current predictions from industry envision that within a decade, the Internet will bepopulated by tens of billion of devices. Already today, smart Internet devices havesensors that provide an enormous potential for creating new applications. The chal-lenge at hand is how this information can be shared on the future Internet in order tounlock the full capability of applications to interact with the real world. Therefore,there is an urgent need for scalable and agile support for connecting people, placesand artifacts in applications via a vast number of devices and sensors on the futureInternet. Clearly, this poses a challenge of sharing and thus storage of so-called con-text information. Beyond scalable context storage lays another challenge to identifyand locate devices that are important to the user. In a support for billion of contin-uously changing sensors and actuators, a search engine would not work. Thereforean intelligent way to group devices is required. This thesis deals with mainly three issues: Firstly, propose a method for devicesto be reachable and thus addressable independent of their location in the infrastruc-ture. Secondly, how can the proposed method be used to insure automatic connectiv-ity anywhere between clients and services offered by the device, in particular associ-ated sensors and actuators. Thirdly, how can the grouping and support be combinedand used to dynamically associate sensors from across the Internet with applications,assuming that the aforementioned grouping exists. The proposed solution to the firstissue is to store identifier-locator pairs in an overlay. For the second issue we pro-pose a sensor socket introduced which exploits the identifier/locator pairs to enabledevice mobility. The third issue is addressed by providing a group-cast operation inthe sensor socket. This arrangement allows communication with peers determinedby a grouping algorithm which operates on context information on the context over-lay. Thus we have enabled the creation of automated dynamic clustering of sensorsand actuators in the Internet of Things.The sensor socket is designed as a stand-alone module to support any contextoverlay that provides the same basic functionality. The sensor socket embodiesa support to automatically interconnect and communicate with devices. Using abridging software, remote devices can be dynamically found and inserted into legacylocal area network where current devices can benefit from the connectivity. For fu-ture work the bridge can be extended to actively locate and identify nearby sensorsthat are unable to participate in the overlay network otherwise.

    Potential to reduce climate impact with digitalisation in agriculture – literature review and a case study of milk2021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The agricultural sector in Sweden needs to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Digitalisation has the potential to contribute to this reduction. The term digitalisation is used to describe a process for digital transformation of products and processes. The purpose is to enable better decisions by using an increased insight through collecting data, and to process the collected data using different smart algorithms. In this report, we present a literature review on research of the potential to reduce climate impact with digitalisation in agriculture. The result of the literature review was applied on a case study, where different scenarios with varying degrees of digitalisation were tested to quantify possible reductions in GHG emissions when introducing digitalisation techniques at a Swedish dairy farm. The results shows that implementation of various digitalisation technologies at a Swedish dairy farm has a potential to reduce the carbon footprint of Swedish milk by 16 %. Precision livestock farming shows the largest potential with an estimated reduction of 14 %, primarily due to feed efficiency and improved animal health and longevity, reducing the total number of animals while maintaining high milk output. It is however important to evaluate the whole system, as changes in the dairy system might impact other farms and food producing systems. This indicates a need for research to further investigate the potential GHG reduction when introducing digitalisation in agriculture.

    Digitaliseringens möjligheter och utmaningar inom förvaltning och underhållsplanering av broar: Förstudie2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Rapporten behandlar digitalisering – att införa ny digital teknik – i förvaltningsverksamheten av broar. Omfattningen är en förstudie med syftet att identifiera behovet av framtida forskning för en långsiktig utveckling av broförvaltningen. En grundläggande ansats var att en digitalisering ska minska behovet av kostsamma underhållsåtgärder men bibehålla en hög säkerhet för våra broar. Projektets mål var att samla information om digitala informationsmodeller som skapas under investeringsskedet, utvärdera överlämningen av digitala modeller till förvaltningsskedet, och värdera den eventuella nyttan med digital informationsinsamling för tillståndsbedömning och underhållsplanering. En viktig del av detta var beskrivningen av dagens förvaltningssystem och hur det skulle kunna utvecklas. Studierna har bedrivits genom en enkätundersökning med respondenter från konsultfirmor aktiva inom broprojektering, intervjuer med tekniska experter och litteratursökningar. Resultatet visar att projekteringen av broar idag huvudsakligen görs genom byggnads-informationsmodellering (BIM). Inriktningen är mot byggskedet där samordning och kommunikation bedöms vara de största nyttorna. Överlämningen till förvaltningen består dock av relationsritningar i formen av enkla ritningsfiler. Trots att Trafikverkets strategi för BIM beskriver att en informationsmodell bör leva kvar under hela brons livslängd, finns det tveksamheter huruvida en modell från projekteringen är lämplig som förvaltningsmodell. Istället lyfts andra metoder fram för att skapa en modell av det byggda utförandet. Till exempel optiska metoder för skanning och fotogrammetri. Förvaltningssystemen bör utvecklas med funktioner för att lagra och tillgängliggöra stora mängder digital information från sensorer maskinella inspektioner. Syftet är att minska osäkerheterna i det byggda utförandet och graden av nedbrytning, för att slutligen skapa ett bättre underlag för beslut om åtgärder. Ett framtida scenario är en digital tvilling som speglar den verkliga konstruktionen och uppdateras kontinuerligt genom sensordata. Gällande hårdvara för mätningar behöver sensorer och system utvecklas med avseende på energiförbrukning, energiskördning och underhållsåtgärder, t.ex. genom kombinationer av utbytbara komponenter med kort livslängd och andra delar med lång livslängd. Fiberoptiska sensorer visar på lovande egenskaper men utveckling behövs för att göra dem mer kostnadseffektiva i relation till konventionella sensorer.

    Digitaliseringens möjligheter och utmaningar inom förvaltning och underhållsplanering av broar: Förstudie2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report deals with digitization – the introduction of new digital technology – in the management of bridges. The scope is a preliminary study with the aim of identifying the needs for future research for a long-term development of bridge management. A fundamental condition was that digitalisation should reduce the need for costly maintenance measures but maintain a high level of safety for our bridges.

    The objectives were to gather information about digital information models created during the investment phase, evaluate the handover of digital models to the management phase, and evaluate the potential benefits of digital information collection for condition assessment and maintenance planning. An important part of this was the description of the current management system and how it could be developed.

    The studies were conducted through a survey with respondents from consulting companies active in bridge design, interviews with technical experts and literature reviews.

    The results show that the design of bridges today is mainly done through building information modelling (BIM). The focus is on the construction phase where coordination and communication are judged as the greatest benefits. The handover to the management, however, consists of drawings in the form of simple files. Although the Swedish Transport Administration's strategy for BIM describes that an information model should follow the bridge throughout its life cycle, doubts have been expressed whether a model from the design is suitable as a management model. Instead, other methods are suggested for creating a model of the as-built structure. For example, optical methods for scanning and photogrammetry.

    Management systems should be developed with functions for storing and distributing large amounts of digital information from sensors and autonomous inspections. The aim should be to reduce the uncertainties regarding the as-built design and the degree of degradation, in order to create a better basis for decisions on measures. A future scenario is a digital twin that reflects the actual design and is continuously updated with sensor data.

    Regarding hardware for measurements, sensors and systems need to be developed considering energy consumption, energy harvesting and maintenance measures, e.g., by combinations of replaceable components with a short service life and other parts with a long service life. Fibre optic sensors show promising properties, but development is needed to make them more cost-effective in relation to conventional sensors.

    lntegrated Optical Fiber Sensors in Additive Manufactured Metal Components for Smart Manufacturing Applications2019In: Smart Systems Integration; 13th International Conference and Exhibition on Integration Issues of Miniaturized Systems, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This work combines fiber optic sensors with additive manufacturing to enable integration of temperature and strain sensors in metal components. In this paper, we present a fiber optic sensor network integrated in press hardening tools to monitor the contact between the tool and the metal sheet during forming operation. The tools are manufactured through metal powder bed fusion using laser melting processes (PBF-SLM), after which the tools are prepared for sensor integration. A demonstrator press hardening tool with integrated fiber optic sensors was heated using an electric heat foil and the sensor measurements was compared to a thermal simulation model. The sensor technology is based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs), integrated at several positions along the optical fiber. FBGs are in-fiber sensors that are multiplexed. lt is possible to place hundreds of FBG sensors along one single fiber, thus allowing for quasidistributed sensing of temperature or strain. The optical fiber itself can be less than 100 micrometer in diameter, allowing for sensing at several points in a minimally invasive way, when integrated in a tool or component.

    Surveying indexing methods for the Internet of things2016In: Internet of Things. IoT Infrastructures: Second International Summit, IoT 360° 2015, Rome, Italy, October 27-29, 2015, Revised Selected Papers, Part II, Springer, 2016, Vol. 170, p. 282-291Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Internet of Things is expected to expand several magnitudes in the coming decade surpassing over 50 billion devices. In the Internet of Things there is a need to support complex queries on the massive amount of information that will be made available. The scalability of the indexes used to support the queries is therefore critical. This paper therefore investigate what type of index that could scale to the size required by the Internet of Things. We find that range query is an approach that support continuously changing information and fast updates with the lowest increase in signaling per participating device.We find that a Chord-based distributed hash table hosting a NUBL range query indexing scheme will scale to the required size while supporting multidimensional range queries.

    STC-CAM1, IR-visual based smart camera system2015In: ACM International Conference Proceeding Series, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015, p. 195-196Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Safety-critical applications require robust and real-time surveillance. For such applications, a vision sensor alone can give false positive results because of poor lighting conditions, occlusion, or different weather conditions. In this work, a visual sensor is complemented by an infrared thermal sensor which makes the system more resilient in unfavorable situations. In the proposed camera architecture, initial data intensive tasks are performed locally on the sensor node and then compressed data is transmitted to a client device where remaining vision tasks are performed. The proposed camera architecture is demonstrated as a proof-ofconcept and it offers a generic architecture with better surveillance while only performing low complexity computations on the resource constrained devices.

    A Flexible Sensor and Actuator Gateway for Internet-of-Things Applications2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is currently a vast amount of sensors, actuators, and other devices intended to create the Internet-of-Things. However, most of these only operate within a particular manufacturer’s ecosystem and with a limited set of compatible hardware. In response to this we present a general sensor and actuator gateway for the Internet-of-Things, which provides the flexibility to easily exchange sensor and actuator hardware. The gateway is implemented as a proof-of-concept prototype that is verified to be compatible with a wide range of commercial off the shelf hardware. It is also shown to be able to run the SensibleThings platform, a fully distributed and open communication platform for Internet-Things applications.

    Power consumption for global information dissemination in the Internet of Things2015In: 2015 IEEE 10th International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing, ISSNIP 2015, 2015, p. Art. no. 7106933-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Internet of Things is a research topic, where billions of things, both sensing and actuating, connect to the Internet, interact, exchange information and enable intelligent services. Current resource consumption models are adapted to information distribution where the cost of information gathering is neglected. However, the emerging Internet of Things will contain billions of sensors that are capable of producing information in real-time, which both demand more resources, and is of interest to fewer users. In this paper, we present an analytical power model for both information collection and distribution in order to find the total power consumption of the Internet of Things. We apply the model to both a centralized and a distributed scenario where billions of devices produce and consume sensor information continuously. We find through analysis that there is a reduced power consumption for content traffic in distributed solutions when compared with centralized solutions for equal numbers of devices, sensors, and users. Thus, we conclude that a fully distributed solution for information gathering and dissemination is preferable to centralized solutions for retrieving the current version of information that changes often.

    Overlay Enhanced Mobility for the Internet of Things2015In: Journal of Networks, E-ISSN 1796-2056, Vol. 10, no 7, p. 420-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the major challenges to realize the Internet of Things is to support IP mobility for the large amount of connected entities when they move between different locations and access methods. Current solutions for mobility are host centric, requiring support from the infrastructure, or breaks backwards compatibility, which will take a long time or high economic motivation to implement. Solutions for context information exchange are created for specific, small, or localized scenarios with centralized coordination that do not scale well. There is therefore a need for a solution which both scales well, and support IP mobility, without additional demands on current or future Internet infrastructure.We propose the use of a dual-overlay network structure for both information dissemination and as an alternative to current IP mobility technologies. It separates identities from location by introducing a second overlay network where the identity-to-location association is stored. We show analytically that the proposed solution provide logarithmic latency for localization and reduces the overall workload when the number of sensors per host increases beyond seven, with a workload reduction of 15 percentage points at fifteen sensors per host.

    Abstract [en]

    Current context-aware applications often use thelocation of a user as the only indication of the current situation.These existing applications are therefore limited in their situationawareness, because of the poor indoor resolution of the locationsensor and its high resource consumption. In response to theselimitations we present an approach to estimate the contextualsituation of a user without using resource inefficient locationsensors. Our proposed solution utilizes a wide range of lowpowered sensors, together with two modified machine learningtechniques to estimate the situation in a more resource efficientmanner. Simulations and a proof-of-concept application show thatthe situation of a user can be determined within 50 ms at anaccuracy above 90%, when only using the low energy sensorsavailable on a smartphone and its limited processing power.

    MediaSense – an Internet of Things Platform for Scalable and Decentralized Context Sharing and Control2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Research in Internet-of-Things infrastructures hasso far mainly been focused on connecting sensors and actuatorsto the Internet, while associating these devices to applicationsvia web services. This has contributed to making the technologyaccessible in areas such as smart-grid, transport, health, etc.These early successes have hidden the lack of support forsensor-based applications to share information and limitationsin support for applications to access sensors and actuatorsglobally. We address these limitations in an novel open-sourceplatform, MediaSense. MediaSense offers scalable, seamless,real-time access to global sensors and actuators via hetero-geneous network infrastructure. This paper presents a setof requirements for Internet-of-Things applications support,an overview of our architecture, and application prototypescreated in order to verify the approach in a test bed withusers connected from heterogeneous networks.

    Aim To describe registered nurses' (RNs) perceptions of their own leadership and of their immediate line management, as well as leadership's organizational prerequisites in municipal elderly care. Background Nursing leadership is a main factor influencing care quality. In spite of this, there is a leadership crisis in municipal elderly care. Method A descriptive design utilizing a questionnaire. The setting was 60 residential care homes in Sweden with 213 participating nurses. The response rate was 62%. Results Most nurses (59%) viewed themselves as leaders of a smaller group, whereas 28% did not consider themselves as leaders at all. Few nurses had the will to develop their leadership competence. In all, 25% of the nurses had unresolved serious conflicts with their immediate line management. Half perceived receiving no or little feedback from their immediate line management. A majority had no organized supervision. They perceived, on average, organizational prerequisites as unclear, with few possibilities for leadership competence development. Conclusions Nurses need to be more willing to develop their leadership skills. Nurses need managers to support them in their leadership roles. They need distinct and supportive organizational prerequisites for leadership. Implications for nursing management It is crucial to provide distinct and supportive organizational prerequisites for nursing leadership.

    Sensor sockets enabling reliable communication using a context based grouping mechanism2011In: 2011 Baltic Congress on Future Internet and Communications, BCFIC Riga 2011, IEEE conference proceedings, 2011, p. 161-167Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There are more sensors connected to the Internet today and corporations predict that there will be billions of sensors within the decade. With billions of sensors, there is an opportunity for new behavior from applications in mobile devices based on sensor input. But such applications require a mechanism to provide a manageable subset of sensors, relevant to the user's current situation; since no single device is capable of maintaining a list of billion sensors. By using a context enabled distributed storage of sensors; we can provide communication with a finite set of nodes that are deemed relevant to the user's current context.We introduce the notion of a sensor socket, that share API similarities to a TCP/IP socket, which provides communication with remote devices. We identify requirements on the grouping mechanism concerning connectivity to ensure reliable communication decoupled from location. We then provide a scenario for how sensor sockets could enable device connectivity. Finally, we demonstrate a subset of the scenario, with a proof of concept, by presenting ad-hoc association of a printing resource with a mobile device connected to the Internet via mobile broadband

    The MediaSense Framework: Ranking Sensors in a Distributed Architecture2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile telecommunication is evolving rapidly. People no longer only communicate with each other regardless of time and place, but also share other information that is important for the tasks with which they are involved. In response to this growing trend, the Media Sense framework addresses the intelligent delivery of any information to any host, anywhere, based on context-aware information regarding personal preferences, presence information, and sensor values. The focus of this paper is the overall framework, the handling of user profiles, management of context information, real-time distribution and proof of concepts.

    Scenarios, Research Issues, and Architecture for Ubiquitous Sensing2010In: Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering  Vol 68, Springer, 2010, p. 285-297Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes research issues and work-in-progress concerning ubiquitous sensing. We present scenarios where the current approaches are deficient in addressing the needs for ubiquitous sensing in services and applications on the Future Internet, involving the massive sharing of information from sensors via heterogeneous networks. We propose an information-centric architecture for real-time ubiquitous sensing which capitalizes on the proposed locator/identifier split, thus extending the Network of Information (NetInf) approach. From this we identify the challenges for which we present work-in-progress within the framework of the EU-funded MediaSense project. Firstly, we integrate sensors as addressable objects, exposed by means of sensor gateways and relocatable abstract interfaces. Sensor information is thus made available to applications solely based on identity. Secondly, sensor information is made available in a distributed data model towards searching and browsing. Finally, we evaluate the effectiveness of the architecture in proof-of-concept applications for intelligent commuting, environmental monitoring and seamless media transfer, utilizing two different sensor platforms.

    Dissemination of Anonymised Context Information by Extending the DCXP Framework2010In: Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering Volume 32, Springer, 2010, p. 57-66Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing ubiquity of context aware services and systems has been primarily underpinned by the use of centralised servers employing protocols that do no scale well for real time distribution and acquisition of neither sensor data nor dependent services.Any shift from this generic sensor framework mandated a new thinking where sensor data was capable of being propagated in real time using protocols and data models which serve to reduce unnecessary communication overhead. DCXP is proposed as an alternative architecture for the real time distribution of context information to ubiquitous mobile services.As a P2P based distributed protocol, it inherently poses the challenge of user anonymity across the system. In this paper we briefly present DCXP along with further work to enable the anonymised dissemination of sensor information within the architecture.Such a solution would have a negligible impact on the overall scalability and performance of DCXP.

    Location-Based Ubiquitous Context Exchange in Mobile Environments2010In: Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering Vol 68, Springer, 2010, p. 177-187Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Context-aware applications and services require ubiquitous access to context information of users. The limited scalability of centralized servers used in the provisioning of context information mandates the search for scalable peer-to-peer protocols. Furthermore, unnecessary signaling must be avoided in large-scale context networks, when location-based services only require nodes in a certain area with which to communicate context. To this end, we propose a lightweight model for composing and maintaining unstructured location-scoped networks of peer-to-peer nodes, which gossips in order to ensure quality of service for each user. The model is implemented in a prototype application running in a mobile environment, which is evaluated with respect to real-time properties. This model can also be extended to include more context dimensions, other than location.

    Ubiquitous Mobile Awareness from Sensor Networks2010In: Enabling Context-Aware Web Services: Methods, Architectures, and Technologies, CRC Press, 2010, p. 449-468Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Users require applications and services to be available everywhere, enabling users to focus on what is important to them. Therefore, context information from users (e.g., spatial data, preferences, available connectivity and devices, etc.) needs to be accessible to systems that deliver services via a heterogeneous infrastructure. We present a novel approach to support ubiquitous sensing and availability of context to services and applications. This approach offers a scalable, distributed storage of context derived from sensor networks wirelessly attached to mobile phones and other devices. The support handles frequent updates of sensor information and is interoperable with presence services in 3G mobile systems, thus enabling ubiquitous sensing applications. We demonstrate these concepts and the principle operation in a sample ubiquitous mobile awareness service. The importance of this contribution, in comparison to earlier work, lies in the availability of real-time ubiquitous sensing to both applications on the Internet as well as applications in mobile systems.

    Distributed Context Support for Ubiquitous Mobile Awareness Services2009In: 2009 Fourth International ICST Conference on Communications and Networking in China. ChinaCom'09., IEEE conference proceedings, 2009, p. 869-873Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Context-aware applications and services require ubiquitous access to context information about the users or sensors such as preferences, spatial & environmental data, available connectivity, and device capabilities. Systems for the brokering or the provisioning of context data via wireless networks do so with centralized servers or by employing protocols that do not scale well with real-time distribution capabilities. In other cases, such as the extending of presence systems, the data models are limited in expressive capabilities and consequently incur unnecessary signaling overhead. This paper presents a distributed protocol, the Distributed Context eXchange Protocol (DCXP), and an architecture for the real-time distribution of context information to ubiquitous mobile services: We present the architecture and its principle operation in a sample ubiquitous mobile awareness service. Preliminary results indicate that our approach scales well for the ubiquitous provision of context data in real-time to clients on the Internet via 3G wireless systems. Performed measurements show that DCXP can reduce the time to process context data with a factor of 20 compared to similar approaches.
