Abstract

The book is based on practical requirements for the management of quantitative research data in small to medium-sized research projects in the social sciences, which generate and analyse data, save original data and archive and make them available for further use in the long term. In order to equip scientists with the tools to specifically meet these requirements, typical questions of data-based research projects are addressed on the basis of application cases and systematically processed with proven concepts of research data management. Overall, the book is a practical guide to documenting data-based research products (e.g. data files, measuring instruments, survey methods, analysis syntaxes) step by step, securing them professionally and making them available for subsequent use. In addition, the book highlights open questions and current challenges in dealing with research data. In the interest of scientifically and methodologically sound research data management, it also opens up perspectives for university education and research into the management of research data.

Abstract

The proliferation of powerful but cheap devices, together with the availability of a plethora of wireless technologies, has pushed for the spread of the Wireless Internet of Things (WIoT), which is typically much more heterogeneous, dynamic, and general-purpose if compared with the traditional IoT. The WIoT is characterized by the dynamic interaction of traditional infrastructure-side devices, e.g., sensors and actuators, provided by municipalities in Smart City infrastructures, and other portable and more opportunistic ones, such as mobile smartphones, opportunistically integrated to dynamically extend and enhance the WIoT environment. A key enabler of this vision is the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various mobile-related sectors, ranging from the effective synergic management of wireless communications to mobility/adaptivity support in operating systems and differentiated integration and management of devices with heterogeneous capabilities in middleware, from horizontal support to crowdsourcing in different application domains to dynamic offloading to cloud resources, only to mention a few. The book presents state-of-the-art contributions in the articulated WIoT area by providing novel insights about the development and adoption of middleware solutions to enable the WIoT vision in a wide spectrum of heterogeneous scenarios, ranging from industrial environments to educational devices. The presented solutions provide readers with differentiated point of views, by demonstrating how the WIoT vision can be applied to several aspects of our daily life in a pervasive manner.
