Internet of things (IoT) and blockchain-based lightweight AI solutions for monitoring smart and resilient infrastructures
Reference persons GIAN PAOLO CIMELLARO
Description The future smart cities around the world will see the deployment of a broad range of IoT sensors for intelligent monitoring of civil infrastructure. Existing IoT-based infrastructure sensing tools are largely deficient in onboard computing capability. In addition, existing AI-based infrastructure monitoring techniques are primarily based on complex algorithms involving expensive computation, which the traditional low-cost edge devices cannot support.
This research addresses this gap by developing lightweight AI solutions suitable for resource constrained edge environments to achieve a reliable real-time response using the latest blockchain technologies. Blockchain technology affords efficiency, scalability, data security, information transparency, and independent decision-making, which can play a pivotal role in overcoming some of the pressing limitations of future IoT platforms.
