Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Nowadays more and more physical devices communicate and interact with others over the Internet Streetlight as a pervasive urban infrastructure plays an important role in moving towards the smart city concept Through integrating various sensors and embedded devices provides the opportunity to transform this large-scale infrastructure into a multifunctional digital urban platform In this thesis our main objective is to design and implement a web-based streetlight management system that includes a set of edge devices (single-board computers microcontrollers sensors and IP cameras) In addition to lighting control this platform provides live streaming and real-time environmental sensor data as well as a historical information query API To increase the manageability and scalability we propose a novel architecture to deploy both the cloud and edge services based on the containerization technology and the preliminary performance evaluation shows the feasibility of running multiple containers in resource-constrained edge devices Furthermore communications between cloud and edge are secured with token verification and transmitted over an SSH tunnel
