Smart Infrastructure at Home Using Internet of Things
The Internet of things can be defined as a world-wide network of interconnected objects, which are uniquely addressable. Smart home is one of the applications of the Internet of things in the development of networking technologies. In a smart home, all the home appliances like Lights, Fans, Computer, etc. can be interconnected with a Wireless Sensor Network and can be manipulated by a smart mobile from inside and outside the door through gateway. In the traditional smart home architecture, the Memory and CPU of the Sensor Nodes are idle for most of the time, and these resources were not used in an efficient manner. Using the Virtualization concept of Cloud computing technology, in this paper, we have proposed an energy and cost effective smart home architecture, which connect the Wireless Sensor Nodes through the Virtual Sensor Network (VSN). Virtual Sensor Networking is a developing approach which enables the dynamic collection of a subset of sensor nodes. Our simulation result shows that there is a falling of CPU utilization by 70%, and it also increases the efficient usage of memory capacity.
