Dynamic Distributed Monitoring for 6LoWPAN-based IoT Networks

Mission-criticalal Internet of Things (IoT)-based networks are increasingly employed in daily and industrial infrastructures. The resilience of such networks is crucial. Given IoT networks’ constantly changing nature, it is necessary to provide dependability and sustainability. A robust network monitoring can reinforce reliability, such that the monitoring mechanism adapts itself to real-time network instabilities. This work proposes a proactive, dynamic, and distributed network monitoring mechanism with monitor placement and scheduling for 6LoWPAN-based IoT networks intended for mission-critical applications. The proposed mechanism aims to ensure real-time monitoring coverage while respecting the limited and changing power resources of devices to prolong the network lifetime.
