Mission-critical IoT applications: use-cases, enablers and research challenges
The Internet of Things (IoT) concept has undergone a fundamental transformation in recent decades: departing from the legacy radio frequency identification (RFID) technology of the 1980s and the wireless sensor networks of the 1990s, which were essentially siloed “connectivity islands” with limited interoperability, to its present form, which is becoming increasingly interconnected and heterogeneous.
Today’s IoT is already a fusion of numerous networked tools and appliances, equipped with advanced computational intelligence and rich communication capabilities. More broadly, the principles of contemporary IoT overlap with and permeate many adjacent domains the principles of contemporary IoT overlap with and permeate many adjacent domains, including mobile and pervasive computing, as well as robotics and cyber-physical systems – with applications ranging from smartphone-based social networking that reduces traffic and pollution in cities to mission-critical industrial automation that monitors and actuates over factory processes.
In this lecture we will cover industry-driven use-cases for mission-critical IoT applications, identify their service requirements and formulate research challenges associated with supporting them in prospective 5G/5G+ mobile cellular systems.
Dmitri Moltchanov received the M.Sc. and Cand.Sc. degrees from the St. Petersburg State University of Telecommunications, Russia, in 2000 and 2003, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the Tampere University of Technology in 2006. Currently he is University Lecturer in with the Laboratory of Electronics and Communications Engineering, Tampere University of Technology, Finland. He has (co-)authored over 150 publications on wireless communications, eterogeneous networking, IoT applications, applied queuing theory. In his career he has taught more than 50 full courses on wireless and wired networking technologies, P2P/IoT systems, network modeling, queuing theory, etc. His current research interests include research and development of 5G/5G+ systems, ultra-reliable low-latency service, industrial IoT applications, mission-critical V2V/V2X systems and blockchain technologies.

Weakly Electric Fish inspired Cognitive Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) based systems shall play a major role in the future city, future homes, vehicles and, overall, in aiding us in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. These sensor systems are required to act “smart” and under a range of practical limitations. Some of the major challenges in front of us include extremely high data throughput, a need for in situ preprocessing, and heterogeneity of sensors (and tasks).
In retrospection, these challenges are not new and biological systems handle them on a regular basis. In the current talk, I shall discuss briefly the working of neural information processing in an interesting animal, viz. Weakly electric fish. It’s simple nervous system, which has been well studied, makes it a good candidate to drive inspirations from. After discussing the interesting ways in which it handles its sensory information, I shall present a Cognitive Internet of Things architecture inspired by this animal. In conclusion, I shall discuss an ANN architecture we have been working on which can enable our CIoT feasible and about an ocean buoy development project in which we intend to use a limited version of this architecture.
Prof. Amit Kumar Mishra is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Cape Town (world rank 156 as per Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings). Since his PhD (which he finished in University of Edinburgh in 2006), Prof. Mishra has been an active researcher in the domain of sensor design, radar, applied machine learning and frugal innovation. Over his academic career spanning over 12 years he has worked in India, Australia and South Africa. He has also been an Erasmus scholar, through which he runs a successful collaboration with University of Pardubice (Czech Republic). He is Senior Member of IEEE and his Google-Scholar based H-index is 14. He has more than 150 peer reviewed publications and five patents. Prof. Mishra is also involved in a number of startups as adviser and is the co-founder of a startup working in the domain of smart IoT based metering systems.

Connecting Intelligent Things in the Battle Field – The Internet of Battle Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving towards systems that are not only able to acquire and transmit data, but also locally process these data and take timely decisions about actions that have to take place. It is possible to name the embedded intelligence in the IoT devices as the driving force behind this evolution, consubstantiating the concept of Internet of Intelligent Things (IoIT).
The applications of this emerging concept are numerous in different domains. An important domain is in the context is defense and security, mainly used by the military, but also in the civilian context by law enforcement organizations, for instance. Despite the similarities with conventional civilian networks, military and security tactical networks impose a number of additional constraints that must be addressed. The insertion of intelligent devices in this scenario brings new possibilities, which are represented by the concept of the Internet of Battle Things (IoBT).
The goal of this talk is to explore emerging approaches to support IoBT networks by means of techniques based on software defined networks (SDN), delay tolerant networks (DTN) and information centric networking (ICN). Additionally, an example of an intelligent IoBT-based law-enforcement application that may benefit from these techniques will be presented.
Prof. Dr. Edison Pignaton de Freitas received his Bac. degree in Computer Engineering from the Military Institute of Engineering, Brazil (2003), and his MSc degree in Computer Science from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil (2007). He received his PhD from Halmstad University, Sweden, (2011) in the area of sensor networks. During 2001-2002 he studied in France, at Institute National des Sciences Appliquées, Toulouse, with a scholarship from the Brazilian National Counsel of Technological and Scientific Development (CNPq).
Currently his holds a position as Associate Professor at Informatics Institute at UFRGS since 2014. He worked as Computer Engineer and Researcher at the Brazilian Army from 2004 to 2013, working in several areas, such as tactical edge networks, unmanned platforms and aerospace defense. During his stay in France, he performed an internship at AIRBUS Central Entity working in the A380 project. His current main research interests are in: Computer Networks, Distributed Real-Time and Embedded Systems, Wireless Sensor Networks, Internet of Things and (multi-) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles systems.
