A visual programming framework for distributed Internet of Things centric complex event processing

Complex Event Processing (CEP) is a promising approach for real-time processing of big data streams originating from Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Even though scalability and flexibility are key issues for IoT applications, current studies are mostly based on centralized solutions and restrictive query languages. Moreover, development, deployment and operation of big-data applications require significant amount of technical expertise. Hence, a framework that provides a higher abstraction level programming model and a streamlined execution environment is essential to facilitate widespread user adoption. In this paper, we propose a data-flow based visual programming model that enables development of big-data applications in IoT domain even by users who have limited or no experience in big-data technologies. A scalable CEP engine is also devised to execute the applications developed using this language. A prototype is implemented by using the state-of-the-art big-data and real-time stream processing technologies to evaluate the applicability and usability of the framework.


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 ...

Gökalp, Mert Onuralp; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2015)
The technological advancements in Internet of Things (IoT) domain have enabled us to reshape the physical world through smart devices, sensors and actuators. The data collected by IoT devices has become a valuable asset to extract knowledge about the environment and other nearby devices. Existing IoT applications mostly store collected data in a central server and allow users to query stored data to notice and react to changes in the environment. Usually cloud and big data technologies are utilized in those...
A real time test setup design and realization for performance verification of controller designs for unmanned air vehichles
Küreksiz, Funda; Platin, Bülent Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
In this thesis, a test platform based on real-time facilities and embedded software is designed to verify the performance of a controller model in real time. By the help of this platform, design errors can be detected earlier and possible problems can be solved cost-effectively without interrupting the development process. An unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) model is taken as a plant model due to its importance in current and future military operations. Among several autopilot modes, the altitude hold mod...
A Distributed Fault-Tolerant Topology Control Algorithm for Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks
Bagci, Hakki; KÖRPEOĞLU, İBRAHİM; Yazıcı, Adnan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-04-01)
This paper introduces a distributed fault-tolerant topology control algorithm, called the Disjoint Path Vector (DPV), for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks composed of a large number of sensor nodes with limited energy and computing capability and several supernodes with unlimited energy resources. The DPV algorithm addresses the k-degree Anycast Topology Control problem where the main objective is to assign each sensor's transmission range such that each has at least k-vertex-disjoint paths to superno...
An Efficient fuzzy fusion-based framework for surveillance applications in wireless multimedia sensor networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
Previous advances in Information Technologies and especially in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, have made the Production and deployment of tiny, battery-powered nodes communicating over wireless links possible. Networks comprised of such nodes with sensing capability are called Wireless Sensor Networks. The early deployment aim was to use these nodes only in a passive way for indoor applications. These kinds of early nodes had the ability to sense scalar data such as temperature, humidity, pressure and lo...
