Shahzad to Study Performance Metrics of the Internet of Things

Dr. Muhammad Shahzad, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $449,999 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support his research proposal entitled “Fine-Grained Measurement of Performance Metrics in the Internet of Things.”
The award will run from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2019. 
Abstract – PI proposes to develop a framework for passive and fine-grained measurements of the performance metrics in the Internet of Things, which include both Quality of Service metrics such as latency, loss, and throughput and Resource Utilization metrics such as power consumption, storage utilization, and radio on time etc. Measurements of these performance metrics can be used reactively by network operators to perform tasks such as detecting and localizing offending flows that are responsible for causing delay bursts, throughput deterioration, or even power surges. These measurements can also be used proactively by network operators to locate and preemptively update any potential bottlenecks.
