BackgroundThe IndustrialInternet of Things (Industrial IoT) has become one of the most popularindustrial technical paradigms and business concepts in recent years.
With thecontinuous integration of emerging information and communication technologies(ICT), industry will experience a revolution in the way it operatesautonomously (Meng Z. et al., 2017). The envisioned industrial systems can potentially supportcollaborative practices, which promises greater production flexibility andproduct variability with minimized human intervention. For example, newservices such as real-time event processing or 24/7 access to trackinginformation are introduced into the supply chain (Sanchez-Iborra, R. Cano, M.2016).
Having a comprehensive monitoring system throughout the entiremanufacturing and supply chain enables us to enrich the entire value-addedchain with valuable information, minimize losses in the event of unexpectedevents and thus improve both business processes and the exchange of informationbetween stakeholders (business-to-business (B2B) networks) (Stock, T. Seliger,G. 2016). Industrial IoT, includes machine learning and big data processingtechnology, using the communication and automation technologies of the sensordata of Machine-2-Machine (M2M), which have existed in the industrialenvironment for years. What is changing is that the Industrial IoT conceptdrives the automation industry to ensure greater interoperability of itsproducts. And that means it’s time to find standards for these technologies andtheir applications. Related WorkThe analysis ofIndustrial IoT by modelling is to be seen as the best way of the study for abetter understanding of the challenges posed by such systems. Since theIndustrial IoT modeling is associated with a broad context, we categorize theassociated work into the following categories from i to iv i.
Research trends in the field of Industrial IoTSallai, G. firstsummarized the challenges of the current Internet and drafts the visions andcurrent capabilities of the future Internet, then Sallai, G. identifies theclusters of the relevant research topics and defines them as chapters of theresearch activities of the future Internet in a layered model. It ranges frombasic research to Internet science, Internet engineering and Internetapplications and experiments of the future. Gubbi et al. present acloud-centric vision to implement the Industrial IoT worldwide.
They discussthe core technologies and application areas that can determine the futuredirection of IoT research. While Jara et al. consider the challenges andopportunities to extend the public IPv4 address space for the Internet ofEverything through IPv6 to support IoT capabilities. While wirelesssensor networks (WSNs) form a virtual layer in which data about the physicalworld can be retrieved from any computer system. Alcaraz et al. emphasize thatWSNs are an invaluable resource for realizing IoT’s vision of integration,security and other issues. The acquisition, modelling, argumentation anddistribution of contexts with regard to sensor data and context-relatedcomputation play a decisive role in IoT applications. ii.
Security and privacy challenges Slavin et al. present the patterns ofsecurity requirements that represent reusable security practices that softwareengineers can apply to improve security in their systems. The paper proposes anew method that combines an approach based on the examination cycle with thenotation of the feature diagram to examine only relevant patterns and quicklyselect the most appropriate patterns for the situation. Skarmeta et al. proposea distributed and capacity-based access control mechanism. It relies on publickey encryption to address certain security and privacy issues on the Internetof Things. Their solution uses the optimized digital signature algorithm of theelliptical curve in the Smart object.
Babar et al. proves analyses of theInternet of Things with regard to security, privacy and confidentiality andpropose the security model for the Internet of Things. Weber considers new security and dataprotection challenges arising from international legislation relating to theright to information, provisions prohibiting or otherwise restricting theapplication of IT security law rules, in support of IoT usage mechanisms. Heer et al. discuss problems and possibilities toapply known Internet protocols and security solutions in IOT. The authors alsodescribe the implementation model and basic security requirements and focus onthe technical limitations of standard IP security protocols. iii. Security and data protection Energy issues within the IoTEnergy consumption (EC) is a major problem for IoT.
Lanziseraet al. offer a “Communication Power Supply” (CPS) to enable power andcontrol information communication between the device and the buildingmanagement system. Schmidt et al. describes the method of constructing sensornode models based on a few simple measurements. They form a sample in which themodels are integrated into a simulation environment within the proposed runtimeframework to support model-based design. Measurements show that the proposedmodel allows a significant reduction of EC. Zhou et al.
a description of theenergy models (EMs) of the central parts of the WSN node such as processors,radio frequency modules and sensors. EM is based on an event activationmechanism. The authors first simulate the node components and then evaluate theEC network protocol using this EM. The model presented here is suitable for theEC WSN analysis, network protocol evaluation and WSN application development.
Venckauskaset al. present a configurable prototype of the IoT, which allows for variousexperiments to be carried out to determine the relationship between energy andsafety in different IoT modes. The paper also presents the methodology ofenergy measurement in the IoT unit. The methodology provides results in twoways: ideal (without the influence of noise in the communication environment inwhich IoT operates) and real (with the influence of noise). Friedman andKrivolapov describe a study that deals with the combined energy and bandwidtheffect of the usage of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection in smartphones. The studyreveals some interesting effects and compromises. In particular, theyidentified many situations where Wi-Fi is a better solution than Bluetooth, whichcontrasts with previous reports. The study also identified several scenariosthat are better managed by Bluetooth.
The conclusions of this study provideinformation on preferred usage patterns that may be of interest to scientists,researchers and smartphone developers. iv. Quality of service Shaoshuai et al. provides decisionmaking through a model for evaluating service quality. This template takes intoaccount both the system status and the user settings to improve the QoSvalidity model. The calculated evaluation of the proposed model can be used asa parameter for evaluating and selecting the service. Seal et al. claim thatusers need a multidimensional QoS to meet the individual needs of severalsystems.
In this sense, the authors present a simple abstraction mechanismconsisting of the QoS function of each application. This function combinesdifferent aspects of QoS for each user in a value that is used to define thebest method of interaction. Liang et al. aims at discontinuousreception/transmission optimization (DRX/DTX) and asks how to maximize devicedowntime while ensuring QoS for devices, especially in terms of bit rate,packet delay and packet loss rate for IoT applications. proposed efficientschemes are provided to optimize theDRX/DTX parameters and the device packages programmed with a base station. Thebasic idea of the schema is a well-balanced relationship between QoS parametersand DRX/DTX configurations. Simulation results show that schemes can guaranteetraffic bit rate, packet delay and packet loss rate while saving energy for theuser’s devices. Jin et al.
introduces different IoT architectures forintelligent urban applications and defines your desired QoS network. Since QoSis one of the biggest network challenges, this topic focuses on wired andwireless networks.
