Replication system for low power internet of things devices
MetadataShow full item record
As technology evolves to where persistent and ubiquitous computing devices exist the possibilities for shared computing increases. The size and power requirements of Internet of Things(IoT) devices varies from each device. However, each of these devices contains processing power, storage, and network connectivity. Many of these devices passively communicate small pieces of data to a central device. For example, a motion sensor may report times of activity to a central hub or a phone could connect to a media device. Typically, these devices communicate through wireless technology such as Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) or Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15). With Bluetooth 4.0 there exists another option which is Bluetooth Low Energy(BLE). With BLE devices can more efficiently query and send data to other devices with minimal power requirements. This paper aims to expand IoT devices to support an advanced protocol for replication of data suitable for vii low power devices communicating over BLE. Different methods of forming a network are considered for optimal replication of data using mesh network topologies. The report will also evaluate methods of data transfer using solely BLE or a combination of BLE and high speed high power protocol such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
