The infrastructure required to deliver various "Internet of Things" (IoT) services is expected to be widely available in the very near future for application areas such as Smart Cities, Smart Homes, Intelligent Transportation and Smart Monitoring in the coming decades. In fact, it is expected that the number of devices connected to the Internet will exceed 50 billion by 2020. It is possible to use these infrastructures for environmental monitoring systems, especially for the early detection and prevention of disasters such as forest fires. Wireless sensors are an essential part of the IoT infrastructure and environmental monitoring/surveillance systems. Wireless sensor networks based on scalar sensors and wireless multimedia sensor networks are widely used for environmental monitoring. Multimedia surveillance systems have better accuracy but a shorter lifetime with multimedia surveillance systems. Therefore, it is necessary to study in detail their energy efficiency to better understand the introduction of more efficient algorithms and architectures. In this study, the lifetimes of the Wireless Sensor Networks(WSNs) and Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks(WMSNs) are considered in a comparative way. The results are presented for a forest fire detection case study using simulations as well as an example of a test bench to confirm the accuracy of the simulation tool used.


Explainable Security in SDN-Based IoT Networks
Sarica, Alper Kaan; Angın, Pelin (2020-12-01)
The significant advances in wireless networks in the past decade have made a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) use cases possible, greatly facilitating many operations in our daily lives. IoT is only expected to grow with 5G and beyond networks, which will primarily rely on software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization for achieving the promised quality of service. The prevalence of IoT and the large attack surface that it has created calls for SDN-based intelligent security solut...
Performability Analysis Methods for Clustered WSNs as Enabling Technology for IoT
Ever, Enver (2019-01-01)
The Internet of Things (IoT) where sensors are used to couple the physical infrastructure with information and communication technologies is the main concept enabling applications such as smart homes, smart cities and intelligent transportation. The distributed sensor networks are used for interconnecting devices to transmit measured information, and control instructions. Therefore, energy efficiency and performability of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are critical for IoT applications. It is possible to c...

Ciklabakkal, Ege; Dönmez, Ataberk; Erdemir, Mert; Suren, Emre; YILMAZ, MUSTAFA TUĞRUL; Angın, Pelin (2019-10-01)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is now being used increasingly in transportation, healthcare, agriculture, smart home and city systems. IoT devices, the number of which is expected to reach 25 billion all over the world by 2021, are required to be deployed very fast, taking into account commercial pressures. This results in a very important layer, i.e. security, being either completely neglected or having significant shortcomings. Since IoT has a heterogeneous structure, there is a need for intrusion detection...

Due to the technological developments, Internet of things (IoT) has become a real phenomenon. Accordingly, many IoT-based smart concepts appeared in our daily lives such as smart home, smart healthcare and smart city. There are several factors accelerating or hindering the adoption of such new services and concepts. So, the acceptance of IoT-based smart services is critical and should be analyzed carefully. In this study, we aimed to prepare a proper starting point for future studies on end user acceptance ...

Poncha, Lemayian Joel; Abdelhamid, Sherin; Alturjman, Sinem; Ever, Enver; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-05-24)
The future of services is expected to heavily rely on "Internet of Things" (IoT) and the ability to create smart spaces such as, smart cities, smart houses, smart transportation, and smart outdoor monitoring (SOM) in the coming few decades. Such smart spaces will require the deployment of significantly large numbers of devices connected to the internet such as sensors, actuators, and wearable computing. It is expected that the number of the connected devices to the internet will exceed 50 billion devices by...
