An Intelligent Fog Centric Network for IoT-Driven Smart Communities
Varieties of sensors and devices developed with the intention of increasing the understanding the environment in which it is deployed is becoming a trend that continuously floods cloud data centers at a rapid rate. This creates a need for the cloud to move closer to the user. Therefore, the paradigm of fog computing is increasingly identified as a useful tool to establish remote intelligence in the context to internet-of-things (IoT). In this paper, we discuss our recent development of a smart fog gateway and its role in orchestrating the process of data acquisition, conditioning, analysis, and storage. The paper also includes a performance evaluation of a couple fog testbed consisting of different embedded computing architectures including Intel Edison and Raspberry Pi to tackle sensor data. This will be followed by a use case within a manufacturing facility. The results demonstrate that the fog gateway provides a promise to transform the interactions among the general purpose sensing devices, smartphones, and the cloud.
