CPS/IoT Ecosystem: Indoor Vertical Farming System

CPS/IoT Ecosystem: Indoor Vertical Farming System

News
Isakovic Haris , Alexander Fasching , Lukas Punzenberger, Radu Grosu Building large-scale IoT applications requires enormous infrastructural support. As infrastructure we understand hardware, software and communication channels necessary to ensure interconnection between various heterogeneous components. Project CPS/IoT Ecosystems explores infrastructural requirements for large-scale applications. The applications are realworld scenarios such as smart parking, smart agriculture or smart buildings. In this paper we explore infrastructural requirements necessary to build modular indoor vertical farming system. The proposed prototype is a service-oriented platform distributed over three scopes of operation: cloud, fog, sensor/actuator.

Sensyml: Simulation Environment for large-scale IoT Applications

Sensyml: Simulation Environment for large-scale IoT Applications

News
Isakovic Haris, Vanja Bisanovic, Bernhard Wally, Thomas Rausch, Denise Ratasich, Schahram Dustdar, Gerti Kappel, Radu Grosu IoT systems are more and more becoming part of civil and industrial infrastructure. With the growth of these IoT ecosystems, their complexity is increasing exponentially. This paper reflects on issues with respect to scalability in these systems. A simulation framework is proposed, that is capable of generating big data, to evaluate scalability of IoT infrastructures and correspondent applications. It is a cloud based Infrastructure as-a-Service (IaaS) system that enables users to test both functionality and scalability of their IoT applications. IEEE/IES IECON 2019, September 2019, Lisbon. PT

Demo: A System for Operating Energy-Aware Cloudlets

Demo: A System for Operating Energy-Aware Cloudlets

News, Publications
Thomas Rausch, Philipp Raith, Padmanabhan Pillai, Scharam Dustar This work was presented at the 4th ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing and was awarded with best demo award. Congrats to the team led by Thomas Rausch. We present an end-to-end system for operating energy-aware cloudlets with a low-footprint cluster manager and an adaptive client-side load balancing approach. Our system is designed for small-scale high-density compute clusters that host stateless services and have stringent energy resource constraints. It features cluster and service management, runtime monitoring, adaptive load balancing and cluster reconfiguration policies. Furthermore, we present an experimentation and analytics system that allows coordinated execution of complex workload experiments to evaluate different operational strategies.

CPS/IoT Ecosystem: Preparing Austria for the Next Digital Revolution

CPS/IoT Ecosystem: Preparing Austria for the Next Digital Revolution

News
Radu Grosu, Schahram Dusdtar, Gerti Kappel, Tom Henzinger, Manfred Gruber, Hermann Kopetz Looking back at the time Bill Gates was one of his brilliant students, Christos Papadimitriou a Harvard professor and world-renowned computer scientist, concluded that one of the greatest challenges of the academic community is to recognizing when an IT revolution is on its way. He did not see the PC revolution coming, but his student did.  Since then several others happened, such as the Internet and the Mobiles revolutions. Another imminent one is in the making: The CPS/IoT revolution. The worldwide academic institutions and especially the Austrian ones have a responsibility to ask the following important questions: Are we prepared for the CPS/IoT revolution? Do we have the proper infrastructure, software tools and courses? The answer is unfortunately…

High-School Student Laura Flandorfer talks about her Internship at TU Wien

News
Laura Flandorfer, a student at the computer engineering branch of the Hertha Firnberg Schools in Vienna, got to know research and science as part of her internship sponsored by the FFG. At the Cyber-Physical Systems Research Division she developed a pick & place machine to equip circuit boards with electronic components. For this she had to design 3D printed parts, assemble the electronics an program the machine. The interview is also featured on the faculty's website.
