  • WinRFID: A Middleware for the Enablement of Radiofrequency Identification (RFID)Based Applications

    Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) middleware is a new class of software which facilitates data and information communication between automatic identification physical layer and enterprise applications. It provides a distributed environment to process the data from tags read by the readers, translates the data where necessary, and routes it to a variety of backend applications using suitable technologies such as Web, Remote and Windows Services. This paper reports different challenges and the corresponding research approach in developing a RFID middleware to provide a seamless environment from the edge of the enterprise network; moving data from the point of transaction to the enterprise systems. Key features of the RFID middleware architecture are encapsulation of communication details, large- scale network management, intelligent data processing and routing, hardware and software interoperability, system integration and system extendibility. To deal with high volume data, WinRFID middleware is supported by novel algorithms and data representation schemes capable of processing large amounts of data, rectifying errors in real-time, identifying patterns, correlating events, reorganizing and scrubbing data and recovering from faults and exceptions. Interoperability involves simultaneous distributed working of receivers/readers and transponders/tags at different frequencies using different protocols, with read/write capabilities, different read rates, and other characteristics as a layer transparent to the applications. Network management involves deployment, initialization and control of receivers and transponders, which can be organized into a hierarchical structure with operational syntax and semantics attached to each or a group of receivers, transponders and concentrators or even the edge computers.

  • Middleware for Fog and Edge Computing: Design Issues

    This chapter discusses different aspects of design of middleware for fog and edge architecture (FEA). It presents state‐of‐the‐art middleware for fog and edge infrastructures and proposes architecture of middleware that supports distributed mobile applications with specific requirements of applications. The proposed middleware primarily focuses on application‐aware task scheduling and data acquisition. A varied class of mobile applications can utilize FEA middleware. The chapter summarizes the requirements for emerging applications. Fog and edge computing applications include the following: batch processing that needs large‐scale data acquisition and distributed processing; quick‐response application that needs a response in real time; and stream applications that require processing of a continuous data stream in real time. The chapter presents a case study that describes an example of a perpetrator tracking application that can be designed through middleware. It also highlights some of the newer areas of research that will improve the design of FEA in the future.

  • Safety Support by an Automotive Middleware

    The amount of software integrated into today’s vehicles growths exponential and tends to be a patchwork of non interrelated applications. However the interrelationship gets more and more intensive as applications start to cooperate and therefore communicate with each other. By introducing a domain exceeding middleware concept we want applications to experience a high level of integration and enable outsourcing of features applications have in common.

  • A Lightweight Container Middleware for Edge Cloud Architectures

    Containers form the basis of a middleware platform that suits the needs of platform‐as‐a‐service (PaaS) clouds, where application packaging and orchestration are key issues. This chapter introduces architecture requirements and review technologies and architectures for edge clouds. It discusses core principles of an edge cloud reference architecture that is based on containers as the packaging and distribution mechanism. The chapter presents different options for storage, orchestration, and cluster management for distributed clusters in edge cloud environments. It provides a report on experimental results with Raspberry Pi clusters to validate the proposed architectural solution. The settings included are: an own‐build storage and cluster orchestration; an OpenStack storage solution; Docker container orchestration; and Internet of Things (IoT)/sensor integration. The chapter also includes practical concerns such as installation and management efforts, since lightweight edge clusters are meant to be run in remote areas.

  • Middleware Support For Context Handling and Integration in Ubiquitous COMPUTING

    Ubiquitous computing (UC) encompasses sensor-instrumented environments, which are often endowed with wireless network interfaces, in which devices, software agents, and services are integrated in a seamless and transparent way and cooperate to meet high-level goals of human users. This chapter introduces some background concepts on UC. It presents the state-of-the-art for the field of middleware for UC. The requirement of the integration of UC middleware is addressed and an existent solution is described - the Open Context Platform Integration (OpenCOPI) platform. OpenCOPI provides an automatic service composition, a standardized context and communication model, and a fault tolerance mechanism that handles service failures. Another important feature of OpenCOPI is the use of semantic workflows. Finally, the chapter presents a new integration platform for UC. It talks about OpenCOPI as an example of a software system developed to integrate different context provision middleware, with the goal of facilitating the development of context-aware ubiquitous applications.
