Building Scalable Cyber-Physical-Social Networking Infrastructure Using IoT and Low Power Sensors
  Wireless Sensors are an important component to develop the Internet of Things (IoT) Sensing infrastructure. There are enormous numbers of sensors connected with each other to form a network (well known as wireless sensor networks) to complete IoT Infrastructure. These deployed wireless sensors are with limited energy and processing capabilities. IoT infrastructure becomes a key factor to building cyber-physical-social networking infrastructure, where all these sensing devices transmit data towards the cloud data center. Data routing towards cloud data center using such low power sensor is still a challenging task. In order to prolong the lifetime of the IoT sensing infrastructure and building scalable cyber infrastructure, there is the requirement of sensing optimization and energy efficient data routing. Towards addressing these issues of IoT sensing, this paper proposes a novel rendezvous data routing protocol for low power sensors. The proposed method divides the sensing area into a number of clusters to lessen the energy consumption with data accumulation and aggregation. As a result, there will be less amount of data stream to the network. Another major reason to select cluster-based data routing is to reduce the control overhead. Finally, the simulation of the proposed method is done in the Castalia simulator to observe the performance. It has been concluded that the proposed method is energy efficient and it prolongs the networks lifetime for scalable IoT infrastructure.
