Introduction to the Minitrack on Smart Application Development and Data Streaming: IoT, I4.0, Smart Cities and More

Sandra Gessing, Peter Salhofer, Cezary Mazurek, Charlie Catlett

The Covid-19 pandemic has majorly influenced the research around smart city applications and data management. One big topic for Smart City Applications are the novel traffic patterns. Traffic is going back to values near pre-pandemic and adding further traffic via delivery services that arose during the pandemic and are here to stay. Fast data solutions, efficient software frameworks and sensors as well as novel concepts such as semantic advancements are needed to address such challenges. The minitrack presents semantic complex event processing for processing sensor data. The panel addresses current trends evolving from new traffic patterns in cities and rural areas as well as trends in data streaming.

Knowledge Core: An SCEP Architecture for Smart Installations with Organization-Defined Policies

With an increase in smart applications and ubiquitous IoT computing, it has become increasingly necessary to investigate available approaches to processing sensor data. Complex event processing provides a means of associating sensor measurements to categories of observed events, such as entry and occupancy, which are more meaningful to smart application developers. Recent advancements in semantic complex event processing (SCEP) provide an opportunity to evaluate matched events within the context of organization-defined policies defined as semantic ontologies. However, research into the application of SCEP to smart applications is currently scarce. In this paper, we introduce the Knowledge Core SCEP architecture which extends the traditional SCEP architecture to a constellation of smart installations with organizational policies. The application of this architecture can provide smart application developers and maintainers with a novel means of processing the data generated by their smart application within a context of what matters to their organization.
