I am a Scientist at TCS Research and currently working at the TCS Innovation Lab, Kolkata. Before that I worked briefly as a researcher at SICS Swedish ICT in Sweden. I got my bachelor’s and master’s degree from Jadavpur University in 2009 and IIT Bombay in 2011, respectively. I completed my PhD studies at the Delft University of Technology in Netherlands in 2016.CV
Virtualizating the IoT ecosystem has three major benefits – (i) tackling heterogeneity through a unified view of the device, (ii) reduce infrastructure cost by reusing and sharing devices, and (iii) achieve higher operational optimization of the deployed devices.
A popular technique to reduce overall data traffic in a WSN is to keep only a subset of nodes active at any point of time. Data for the sleeping nodes can be reproduced using the data from the active nodes. This reproduction utilizes the inherent spatio-temporal correlation amongst the nodes.
Although correlation based sensor data estimation can reduce the overall data traffic significantly, without a complementary routing mechanism, the energy efficiency can be diminished significantly. Also special, routing mechanism is required for energy harvested network and real-time network.
Thermal and visual comfort is not a single temperature value rather a range of temperature values. People cannot easily correlate their comfort levels with temperature or light intensity values. Precise knowlwdge about comfort can lead to higher level of energy savings.
As the vision of IoT advocates for an ecosystem where any device can be accessed any time from anywhere, security and privacy need to be maintained while communicating with any IoT device.
Existing infrastructure-free indoor positioning systems have a strong assumption, i.e., an user always carry a smartphone. This is true for public scenarios, such as shopping malls or airports, but less likely for home and office environments. Thus a localization mechanism need to tackle it.
Sharing is good, and with digital technology, sharing is easy.
- Richard Stallman
Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public,
but because it is fun to program. - Linus Torvalds
