The Internet of Things (IoT) will represent the backbone of modern society and the next-generation Internet. By integrating heterogeneous service models and devices into a cohesive system, the IoT exhibits tremendous potential to meet the information-processing demands of smart environments, such as Industry 4.0, Smart Cities and Connected Cars. The integration, however, also aggravates the complexity of both design and deployment, and brings new challenges with respect to the dependability of IoT systems.
This workshop will place its focus on wireless technologies that play a key role in connecting IoT-devices to the Internet. Wireless technologies can also be used for localization, a critical capability to provide the context between physical devices and the virtual world. Physical and man-made impairments (e.g., multipath propagation and radio interference) have a strong influence on the dependability of these wireless services.
We specifically welcome contributions that aim at making wireless communications and localization more reliable, predictable, safe, and secure to enable safety-critical applications that require guaranteed performance. Both research and practical aspects of dependability considerations in the IoT are of interest.
