Fog Computing on Constrained Devices: Paving the Way for the Future IoT

by   Flavia Pisani, et al.

In the long term, the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to become an integral part of people's daily lives. In light of this technological advancement, an ever-growing number of objects with limited hardware may become connected to the Internet. In this chapter, we explore the importance of these constrained devices as well as how we can use them in conjunction with fog computing to change the future of the IoT. First, we present an overview of the concepts of constrained devices, IoT, and fog and mist computing, and then we present a classification of applications according to the amount of resources they require (e.g., processing power and memory). After that, we tie in these topics with a discussion of what can be expected in a future where constrained devices and fog computing are used to push the IoT to new limits. Lastly, we discuss some challenges and opportunities that these technologies may bring.
