Designing A Fiware-Based Smart Campus With Iot Edge-Enabled Intelligence
Higher education institutions are passing through a fast digital transformation process that has the potential to enable frictionless, touchless, and more intuitive experiences in academia. Moreover, students are now digital natives and demand from higher education institutions new digital services for all academic purposes. In this article, we introduce the design methodology used for the specification of the IPVC Smart & Sustainable, a FIWARE-based smart campus with edgeenabled intelligence. FIWARE is an open-source platform that enables the creation and delivery of cost-effective Future Internet applications and services in a variety of smart applications. Additionally, the core elements of the ICT infrastructure that support the smart campus implementation are identified and a FIWARE-based architecture is put forward, enabling full integration with other legacy systems already in use on the campus. A study to support the selection of IoT edge hardware capable of performing distributed machine learning is also included for future edge intelligence integration. Lastly, some preliminary results are presented and discussed and the forthcoming research is outlined.
