A Flexible semantic service composition framework for pervasive computing environments

Özpınar, Mustafa
With the advances in technology, high-speed connections, powerful and low cost devices have become available. İt is estimated that there will be tens of billions of devices connected to the İnternet by 2020. However, for the effective use of such an outstanding number of devices, they should be able to communicate with each other in different scenarios. A commonly agreed structure should be adopted to overcome the communication problem of heterogeneous devices. Web of Things (WoT) is a vision about quickly connecting devices and services by reusing the Web standards. İn this way, the communication protocol is provided, but service definition, composition and resolving the meaning of data stay as challenging problems. The goal of this thesis study is to investigate the area of semantic service composition, to propose a composition architecture, and to design a proof-of-concept system using heterogeneous networked devices. Accordingly, a lightweight ontology is constructed in order to define services semantically. A service registry solution considering WoT constraints is presented for publishing and discovering services, and a rule-based flexible semantic service composition framework is proposed for composing services to achieve a goal. A proof-of-concept system including some features of the proposed solution is implemented on real devices in order to assess its feasibility. In addition, the proposed solution is compared with existing frameworks by examining scenarios and features.


A Novel Neural Network Architecture for Radar Clutter Classification
Eraslan, Berna; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Tanık, Yalçın (2020-01-01)
In recent years, potential capabilities of modern radars have become tremendous, with rapid advances in electronics and software technologies. If the radar system processes received echoes based on clutter characteristics, detection performance significantly improves. To classify clutters, neural network structures are studied. A problem specific architecture, specialized in clutter classification, is designed. The design procedure of the neural network is explained with necessary theoretical background inf...
A simulation environment for cybersecurity attack analysis based on network traffic logs

The continued and rapid progress of network technology has revolutionized all modern critical infrastructures and business models. Technologies today are firmly relying on network and communication facilities which in turn make them dependent on network security. Network-security investments do not always guarantee the security of organizations. However, the evaluation of security solutions requires designing, testing and developing sophisticated security tools which are often very expensive. Simulation and...
A Novel SDN Dataset for Intrusion Detection in IoT Networks
Sarica, Alper Kaan; Angın, Pelin (2020-11-04)
The number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the use cases they aim to support have increased sharply in the past decade with the rapid developments in wireless networking infrastructures. Despite many advantages, the widespread use of IoT has also created a large attack surface frequently exploited by cyber criminals, requiring real-time, automated detection and mitigation of various attacks in the high-volume network traffic generated. Software-defined networking (SDN) and machine learning (ML) base...
A Cloud Based Architecture for Distributed Real Time Processing of Continuous Queries
Gökalp, Mert Onuralp; Koçyiğit, Altan; Eren, Pekin Erhan (2015-08-28)
With the rapid pace of technological advancements in smart device, sensor and actuator technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) domain has received significant attention. These advances have brought us closer to the ubiquitous computing vision. However, in order to fully realize this vision, devices and applications should rapidly adapt to the changes in the environment and other nearby devices. Most of the existing applications store collected data in a data store and allow users to query stored data to ...
A complex event processing framework implementation using heterogeneous devices in smart environments
Kaya, Muammer Özge; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Department of Information Systems (2012)
Significant developments in microprocessor and sensor technology make wirelessly connected small computing devices widely available; hence they are being used frequently to collect data from the environment. In this study, we construct a framework in order to extract high level information in an environment containing such pervasive computing devices. In the framework, raw data originating from wireless sensors are collected using an event driven system and converted to simple events for transmission over a...
