The Internet of Everything (IoE) is the universe of
devices, sensors and objects connected to the Internet.
Cisco estimates that there are already more than 10 billion
devices from iPads to bathroom scales now
online. By 2020 the number of devices that make up the
IoE is forecasted to reach at least 50 billion.
IoE attracted a sharply growing interest from key industry
players including Apple, that setup a new smart-home
development partnership with other companies; and Intel,
that restructured its management to increase IoE focus.
reviewing recent IoE related activities in the IoE, this
presentation will highlight the remaining challenges with
an emphasis of the Industrial IoE. Particularly, issues
related to IoE security and a potential solution based
on power fingerprinting - an IP that was originally developed
at Virginia Tech, will be presented. Potential applications
of IoE for industrial systems will also be discussed.
Finally, this presentation outlines relevant IoE research
activities at Wireless@Virginia Tech and suggests research
road map to address remaining IoE challenges.
