Abstract

This paper presents a detailed design of an inexpensive, simple, and scalable Distributed Sensor Network (DSN). Each sensor’s hardware consists of a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B microprocessor, a specifically designed and factory-made Printed Circuit Board (PCB), an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Hat based on a High Capacity Lithium Polymer battery (LiPo), Power over Ethernet Splitter, a GPS receiver, and a LoRaWAN module. Each sensor is built to capture GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth signals and sends this information to a network controller implementing a LoRaWAN gateway. Each sensor’s software is developed so all applications run on top of a Linux operating system. The layer above it includes system daemon applications, such as Air-mon, HCI tools, GPSd, and networking support. An SQLite database sits on top of the daemon applications and records the captured information. After the DSN was successfully tested, it was deployed in a research study. The novelty of this study is that this was the first time that a DSN was used in high schools to detect leakage from IoT devices to educate students’ about cyber safety.

Conference

Conference10th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications (ECSA-10)
Period15/11/2330/12/23
OtherParticipants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchange within the community. Best contributions in each session will be collected and brought to a live event broadcast on Webinars through zoom. A student competition will also be held online for selected students' contributions (students as correspondences) exhibited in the Student Session. For more details of the competition please click Event Awards.

This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns about travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because research concerned with sensors is progressing rapidly. An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. Participation, as well as the "attendance" of this online conference, is free of charge.
