MASTEAM Talks - Prof. Abderrahim Tahiri - A horizontal approach for developing Internet of Things solutions

The Master's degree in Applied Telecom. and Engineering Management (MASTEAM) organizes a weekly series of activities (talks, technical visits, discussion pannels) that complement the academic activities with real-world experiences from companies, research centres and institutions in the main topics of the master: Internet of Things. Smart Cities, 5G mobile communications, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Radio (SDR), cloud computing, augmented reality and audiovisual services, among others.


Speaker: Prof. Abderrahim Tahiri

Title: "A horizontal approach for developing Internet of Things solutions"

Abstract: Currently, connected objects also called smart objects are growing strongly. They are everywhere in everyday life, smartphones, smart watches, smart lights, smart ECGs etc. All capable of collecting, processing and transmitting data related to different areas of application namely intelligent housing, intelligent health, environmental and traffic monitoring ... together they represent the Internet of Things (IoT). This growth has given rise to a strong interaction between different types of sensors using various operating systems, connected via heterogeneous network interfaces. As well as a huge amount of data exchanged on the network. What constitutes the major research challenges related to IoT. Several manufacturers offer complete IoT solutions, from collection gadgets to the final application. These solutions, which bring the whole process together, are developed in a vertical and locked way, which prevents developers from reusing them. In our research team, we have developed a horizontal approach to organize the development of "IoT" solutions in a collaborative environment, effectively using the capabilities of today's communication technologies to provide more flexible, reconfigurable and efficient networks. Therefore, the purpose of my communication is to present our horizontal IoT approach implemented in a middleware developed according to a service-oriented architecture to better manage the heterogeneity challenges mentioned above.

Bio: Abderrahim Tahiri obtained the Engineer degree in Computer Sciences in 2000 from Abdelmalek Essaädi University (UAE) in Morocco and the Master degree in Telematics Engineering in 2007 from Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT) in Spain, and the PhD degree in Computer Sciences from UAE in 2009. Currently he is professor at the National School of Applied Sciences in the UAE, he is specialized in Computer Sciences Engineering and a full member of the Computer Sciences Engineering department.

His research interests include software engineering development, software architecture integration, smart information systems model design, and wireless sensor network concepts. He has cooperated in, and coordinated several projects on national level and on European level. His research output includes 50+ co-authored articles. He has been chair of multiple conference tracks related to Information System Engineering and Wireless Sensor Network. At UAE he participates as a full member in the Information System and Engineering Software research team.
