Integration of WSN/IoT as part of Enabling Technology for IR4.0

The presentation starts by looking into the related works in WSN and IoT, then showing the essentials feature as related to the IR4.0. Some proposals for improvement in efficiency of data capturing and transmission from the sensors to the gateway and to the cloud. We discuss various mechanisms for data reduction, gives critical evaluation for data reduction approaches of the previous works and summarized its constraints. The work on APRS (Adaptive Real-Time Payload Data Reduction Scheme) will be described in relation to the usage on multivariate sensors. Overall, the participants are expected to acquire some information regarding the wireless sensor networks in general and the important of data reduction in the data transmission and processing, ultimately result in more efficient system.
