abstract={Information and communication technologies (ICTs) has enabled growth in developed countries and urban cities through improvements in communication systems, devices and applications. In rural areas, especially in developing countries, ICT penetration is not as high, often due to lack of available infrastructure and funding. With the increasing availability of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, low-cost large-scale deployments have become possible even in rural areas. We design, develop and implement, Near Cloud, a cloud-less platform that allows users and IoT devices to communicate and share information. This is built on top of a wireless mesh network (WMN) of low-cost, low-power IoT devices and deployed in areas where there is little to no Internet connectivity. To inject ICT and help bridge the digital divide in rural areas, Near Cloud provides functionalities such as web servers on nodes, accessibility to all users via Wi-Fi, and various data processing including image processing and machine learning. We will show applicability of Near Cloud in improving rural education, health care facilities, disaster response and agriculture.},

year={2018},

pages={249-261},
abstract={Literature has indicated that accurate dietary assessment is very important for assessing the effectiveness of weight loss interventions. However, most of the existing dietary assessment methods rely on memory. With the help of pervasive mobile devices and rich cloud services, it is now possible to develop new computer-aided food recognition system for accurate dietary assessment. However, enabling this future Internet of Things-based dietary assessment imposes several fundamental challenges on algorithm development and system design. In this paper, we set to address these issues from the following two aspects: (1) to develop novel deep learning-based visual food recognition algorithms to achieve the best-in-class recognition accuracy; (2) to design a food recognition system employing edge computing-based service computing paradigm to overcome some inherent problems of traditional mobile cloud computing paradigm, such as unacceptable system latency and low battery life of mobile devices. We have conducted extensive experiments with real-world data. Our results have shown that the proposed system achieved three objectives: (1) outperforming existing work in terms of food recognition accuracy; (2) reducing response time that is equivalent to the minimum of the existing approaches; and (3) lowering energy consumption which is close to the minimum of the state-of-the-art.},

Because of its multilayer structure, deep learning is also appropriate for the edge computing environment. Therefore, in this article, we first introduce deep learning for IoTs into the edge computing environment. Since existing edge nodes have limited processing capability, we also design a novel offloading strategy to optimize the performance of IoT deep learning applications with edge computing. In the performance evaluation, we test the performance of executing multiple deep learning tasks in an edge computing environment with our strategy.

abstract={Applications making use of embedded systems are anticipated to become extremely important as we advance towards realizing the vision of "Internet of Things" with smart devices such as Raspberry Pi, and compute-anywhere paradigm where principles of distributed systems play pivotal roles. A case we envision here is a distributed network of low powered devices to accomplish various tasks autonomously. Driven by a distributed embedded system architecture, each of the devices can work on independent local data, which is device specific, to perform similar compute tasks simultaneously so a common goal can be achieved. This collaborative problem solving in the embedded setting is similar in concept to the big data paradigm now commonly proposed for commodity hardware and large databases. As the embedded devices become more capable and powerful the two concepts will combine. However, they are currently worlds apart, and thus forms the motivation of our research. In this project, a middleware layer is developed and tested to make the devices work collaboratively on local data within a network of Raspberry Pi devices. The middleware layer splits, distributes, computes and merges the computing tasks to accomplish a shared computing goal while performing the operations locally in a "shared nothing" architecture.},

abstract={A computer program, at its most basic level is a series of low level processor instructions which are executed sequentially. These instructions take time to execute, thus longer programs have longer execution times. One way to decrease the execution time for a program is to decrease the required time for each instruction. This is called frequency scaling. The disadvantage of frequency scaling is that running a processor at higher speeds causes it to generate more heat and consume more power. The physical properties of transistors also impose limits on how fast a microprocessor can be built. The solution to the problem of frequency scaling is to, instead of decreasing the time to execute an instruction, increase the number of instructions that can be run in a given amount of time, by running these instructions in parallel. This is known as parallel computing, and in this paper we present a solution for using many off-the-shelf computers to build a computing cluster which will accelerate computing performance by running tasks in parallel. To this end, we introduce a middleware for writing distributed applications on physical computing devices, such as the Raspberry Pi computer.},

abstract={The emergence of edge computing has its basis in the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) with the Cloud computing. In order to make it possible, management technologies of data centers have to be combined with significantly more limited devices. The Docker technology, which provides a very lightweight and effective virtualization solution, can be utilized to manage, deploy and distribute edge/cloud applications onto clusters (that, in our case, will be composed by lightweight and small board devices-such as Raspberry Pi). We apply this on the human activity identification scenario. These types of edge devices can be very useful especially in cases when the combination of low costs and robustness is desirable due to various reasons and conditions. In our work, we propose and analyze a framework based on the distributed edge/cloud paradigm. It is able to provide an advantageous combination of various benefits and lower costs of data processing performed at the edge instead of central servers. Support Vector Machine (SVM) has been utilized for recognizing human activity via the proposed framework. The results of the use case are presented in detail in this paper along with the simulated experiment.},

However, currently there exists no open-source mobile edge cloud implementation which can easily be deployed over a campus or a city center to support real-world experimentations. We therefore present the design and implementation of MEC-ConPaaS, a mobile-edge cloud platform, which aims to support future research on edge cloud applications and middlewares. The system exploits single-board computers such as Raspberry Pis which are an order of magnitude cheaper than any server machine and much easier to setup in a distributed setting.

abstract={Cloud technology is moving towards multi-cloud environments with the inclusion of various devices. Cloud and IoT integration resulting in so-called edge cloud and fog computing has started. This requires the combination of data centre technologies with much more constrained devices, but still using virtualised solutions to deal with scalability, flexibility and multi-tenancy concerns. Lightweight virtualisation solutions do exist for this architectural setting with smaller, but still virtualised devices to provide application and platform technology as services. Containerisation is a solution component for lightweight virtualisation solution. Containers are furthermore relevant for cloud platform concerns dealt with by Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) clouds like application packaging and orchestration. We demonstrate an architecture for edge cloud PaaS. For edge clouds, application and service orchestration can help to manage and orchestrate applications through containers. In this way, computation can be brought to the edge of the cloud, rather than data from the Internet-of-Things (IoT) to the cloud. We show that edge cloud requirements such as cost-efficiency, low power consumption, and robustness can be met by implementing container and cluster technology on small single-board devices like Raspberry Pis. This architecture can facilitate applications through distributed multi-cloud platforms built from a range of nodes from data centres to small devices, which we refer to as edge cloud. We illustrate key concepts of an edge cloud PaaS and refer to experimental and conceptual work to make that case.},

abstract={The Internet of Things (IoT) integrates a large number of heterogeneous and pervasive objects that continuously generate information about the physical world. These objects, through standard communication protocols and unique addressing schemes provide services to the final users or systems. IoT is envisioned to bring together billions of devices, also denoted as smart objects, by connecting them in an Internet-like structure, allowing them to communicate and exchange information and to enable new forms of interaction among things and people. Given the distributed nature of IoT applications, it is often the case that the application is modeled, developed and tested on each compute node, and connected to other nodes in the application network for achieving the end result. Therefore the deployment of application is also, more or less, done on each individual compute node. In this paper we propose an approach where the IoT application can be modeled in one place, where after modeling, the different pieces of application are annotated with location information, and based on this annotation, the application is decomposed into fragments that are deployed to corresponding individual compute nodes, automatically generating code to remotely connect the application fragments to other application fragments on other compute nodes in the edge or in the cloud.},

abstract={In the Internet of Things(IoT) era, the demands for low-latency computing for time-sensitive applications (e.g., location-based augmented reality games, real-time smart grid management, real-time navigation using wearables) has been growing rapidly. Edge Computing provides an additional layer of infrastructure to fill latency gaps between the IoT devices and the back-end computing infrastructure. In the edge computing model, small-scale micro-datacenters that represent ad-hoc and distributed collection of computing infrastructure pose new challenges in terms of management and effective resource sharing to achieve a globally efficient resource allocation. In this paper, we propose Zenith, a novel model for allocating computing resources in an edge computing platform that allows service providers to establish resource sharing contracts with edge infrastructure providers apriori. Based on the established contracts, service providers employ a latency-aware scheduling and resource provisioning algorithm that enables tasks to complete and meet their latency requirements. The proposed techniques are evaluated through extensive experiments that demonstrate the effectiveness, scalability and performance efficiency of the proposed model.},

abstract={Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as part of thn infrastructures for advancing a large variety of applications involving connection of many intelligent devices, leading to smart communities. Due to the severe limitation on the computing resources of IoT devices, it is common to off load tasks of various applications requiring substantial computing resources to computing systems with sufficient computing resources, such as servers, cloud systems, and/or data centers for processing. However, the off loading method suffers from the difficulties of high latency and network congestion in the IoT infrastructures. Recently edge computing has emerged to reduce the negative impacts of these difficulties. Yet, edge computing has its drawbacks, such as the limited computing resources of some edge computing devices and the unbalanced load among these devices. In order to effectively explore the potential of edge computing to support IoT applications,it is necessary to have efficient task management in edge computing networks. In this paper, an approach is presented to periodically distributing incoming tasks in the edge computing network so that the number of tasks, which can be processed in the edge computing network, is increased, and the quality of-service (QoS) requirements of the tasks completed in the edge computing network are satisfied. Simulation results are presented to show the improvement of using this approach on the increase of the number of tasks to be completed in the edge computing network.},

abstract={In recent years, there has been a paradigm shift in Internet of Things (IoT) from centralized cloud computing to edge computing (or fog computing). Developments in ICT have resulted in the significant increment of communication and computation capabilities of embedded devices and this will continue to increase in coming years. However, existing paradigms do not utilize low-level devices for any decision-making process. In fact, gateway devices are also utilized mostly for communication interoperability and some low-level processing. In this paper, we have proposed a new computing paradigm, named Edge Mesh, which distributes the decision-making tasks among edge devices within the network instead of sending all the data to a centralized server. All the computation tasks and data are shared using a mesh network of edge devices and routers. Edge Mesh provides many benefits, including distributed processing, low latency, fault tolerance, better scalability, better security, and privacy. These benefits are useful for critical applications, which require higher reliability, real-time processing, mobility support, and context awareness. We first give an overview of existing computing paradigms to establish the motivation behind Edge Mesh. Then, we describe in detail about the Edge Mesh computing paradigm, including the proposed software framework, research challenges, and benefits of Edge Mesh. We have also described the task management framework and done a preliminary study on task allocation problem in Edge Mesh. Different application scenarios, including smart home, intelligent transportation system, and healthcare, are presented to illustrate the significance of Edge Mesh computing paradigm.},

abstract={Distributed computing is a good alternative to expensive supercomputers. There are plenty of frameworks that enable programmers to harvest remote computing power. However, until today, much computation power in the edges of the Internet remains unused. While idle devices could contribute to a distributed environment as generic computation resources, computation-intense applications could use this pool of resources to enhance their execution quality. In this paper, we identify heterogeneity as a major burden for distributed and edge computing. Heterogeneity is present in multiple forms. We draw our vision of a comprehensive distributed computing system and show where existing frameworks fall short in dealing with the heterogeneity of distributed computing. Afterwards, we present the Tasklet system, our approach for a distributed computing framework. Tasklets are fine-grained computation units that can be issued for remote and local execution. We tackle the different dimensions of heterogeneity and show how to make use of available computation power in edge resources. In our prototype, we use middleware and virtualization technologies as well as a host language concept.},

abstract={Virtualization of operating systems provides a common way to run different services in the cloud. Recently, the lightweight virtualization technologies claim to offer superior performance. In this paper, we present a detailed performance comparison of traditional hypervisor based virtualization and new lightweight solutions. In our measurements, we use several benchmarks tools in order to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and anomalies introduced by these different platforms in terms of processing, storage, memory and network. Our results show that containers achieve generally better performance when compared with traditional virtual machines and other recent solutions. Albeit containers offer clearly more dense deployment of virtual machines, the performance difference with other technologies is in many cases relatively small.},
