A Framework for Access Coordination in IoT

IoT systems have typically been designed with the assumption that all their resources are available on a concurrent access basis. Conversely, some IoT scenarios only operate correctly if the access to certain resources is given in mutual exclusion fashion and limited to a confined number of nodes. For example, it might not be appropriate that an intrusion detection system prevents a fire suppression service to unlock the doors of a building.
Research paper

This article proposes a service-oriented, resource scheduling framework for IoT systems. The framework is based on the Binary Floor Control Protocol, a protocol designed for managing shared resources in conference systems. The article introduces the design model of the framework and presents an implementation of it. The performance of the framework is evaluated and compared with the current state-of-the-art HTTP solutions for references. In addition, the framework is evaluated with respect to its suitability to be used in IoT. The results confirm that our approach is suitable for IoT environments and achieve good scalability.
