7a.001.UL - Fault-tolerance Strategies for Handling Data-streams on Edge-Networks: Application to Smart Buildings

Project - Summary

Edge computing provides an environment for Internet-of-things (IoT) applications to process and analyze data streams at the edge by reducing both bandwidth and latency costs. The edge alternative is both economical and efficient for many IoT applications compared to processing everything in the cloud. Given that edge devices are loosely coupled nodes, maintaining economical and efficient fault tolerance of these devices is a major challenge. In this project, we (a) study behavior of sensors and edge devices in an actual smart building setting to understand the implications of different types of failures in a smart building setting and (b) propose buffering and network re-transmission strategies allowing the edge device to adapt to changing network conditions to address network and edge device failures.
