FIT IoT-LAB (Platform)

Participants : Thomas Watteyne, Tengfei Chang.

Note well: IoT-lab is not a project of Inria-EVA. It is a large project which runs from 2011 to 2021 and which involves the following other partners Inria (Lille, Sophia-Antipolis, Grenoble), INSA, UPMC, Institut Télécom Paris, Institut Télécom Evry, LSIIT Strasbourg. This section highlights Inria-EVA activity and contribution to the IoT-lab testbed in 2016.

The Inria-EVA team has been using the platform extensively throughout 2016. During the process, we have been interacting closely with the IoT-lab team of engineers.

IoT-lab-related activities include:

  • Running OpenWSN networks at scale. The IoT-lab has been an incredibly powerful tool to verify the scalability of the protocols and implementations in OpenWSN (Section 6.1). Lead: Tengfei Chang.

  • Assessing connectivity with Mercator. The Mercator project (Section 6.6) is targetted at measuring the connectivity of the IoT-lab platform in time, space and frequency. Lead: Keoma Brun-Laguna.

  • 16-channel Sniffer with Argus. We are currently working extending the Argus project (Section 6.9) with support for IoT-lab motes. That is, rather than using a 16-channel sniffer, turn 16 IoT-lab nodes into a distributed multi-frequency sniffer. Lead: Remy Leone.

  • IoT-lab for Interop Testing with F-Interop. Through the H2020 F-Interop project, we are developing the tools (see Section 6.3) to run an F-Interop user's code on the IoT-lab to verify conformance and interoperability. Lead: Remy Leone.

  • Scalable Security Solution with H2020 ARMOUR. Through the H2020 ARMOUR project, Inria-EVA is testing whether security solutions standardized at the IETF are scalable. Lead: Malisa Vucinic.
