Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Today, we are at the dawn of the age of cyber-physical systems and internet of things. One of the commonalities these areas share is that such systems typically consist of networks of entities with means to gather data about the state of the surrounding environment. A fundamental design decision in such settings is whether to transfer data to more capable entities or to analyze data at the sensing entity and to share the resulting information. With this work, we discuss this trade-off by grasping it with three patterns, namely the LOCAL DATA PROCESSING, CENTRAL DATA PROCESSING, and MIXED DATA PROCESSING patterns.
