Building IoT Systems - Challenges and Insights from a Pilot Case Study

Fathelalem Ali Hija | Yasuki Shima | Akimasa Watanabe


Abstract: Applications of the IoT are being continuously developed in various areas to create new businesses. In its typical form, an IoT application comprises a data-censoring device, a communication channel, data processing, and an end user application. In this paper, we investigate the different components of an IoT system and explore their related technological and implementation options. Using a case study of an automated bicycle-monitoring and navigation system in the northern part of Okinawa Island in Japan, we look at the challenges that building an operational IoT system according to the needs of the users entails. We examine various scenarios to select and implement different parts of the IoT system. Although there have been many advances in Internet accessibility and emerging IoT technologies, however, the ability to build and deploy an efficiently operating IoT system for a particular environment and requirements faces several challenges. We find that still there are challenges to deal with in practice; these challenges may involve the power supply, power consumption, operation cost, coverage, and the range of the connectivity, in addition to the ease of deployment. All of these factors should be considered when an IoT system is being built for specific application requirements.
