With the accelerated advancement in technology infrastructure, the concept of libraries in the educational institution has evolved from a traditional system, which consists of several manual processes requiring human intervention to perform critical tasks, to that of a smart library system where the core activities are automated through the use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Integrating IoT devices in the different processes enables the streamlining of such processes rendering them more efficient through the capture of real-time data as they are being generated. This paper describes the implementation of a smart library system in a university campus using IoT devices. The system makes use of analytics and machine learning to analyze trends and make predictions. The system prototype is presented in the paper.

currently, traditional libraries, despite using information systems, are facing problems managing books. In this era of technology, traditional libraries need to innovate and adapt to the smart society. Technologies such as Internet-of-things (IoT) could be used to capture data in real time. Making use of business process re-engineering, a number of processes could be refined. Using a smart library management system that integrates IoT and automating a traditional library’s core processes will p...

Abstract In this project we propose, describe, implement and test the Renewable Energy Monitoring System (REMS), a new concept on data acquisition and transmission systems (DATS) applied to real-time cloud monitoring of a decentralized photovoltaic (PV) plant. To achieve this latest design, we went through various systems projects alongside the evolution of technology. From this practical experience and in agreement with Brazil’s policy of diversifying the electricity generation matrix, our prop...

Current cities worldwide have a goal to be smarter cities, but one of the most important challenges that faces cities nowadays is the waste processing. And there are two factors directly affect this challenge are: the increasing of urban areas and the rapid growth of population. So, it seems evident, the investment in involving the citizens in the interaction with any future waste management system will save a lot of money and efforts. Especially, in the developing countries, citizen needs some ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as a paradigm in which objects equipped with sensors, actuators, and processors communicate with each other to serve a meaningful purpose. In this paper, we survey state-of-the-art methods, protocols, and applications in this new emerging area. This survey paper proposes a novel taxonomy for IoT technologies, highlights some of the most important technologies, and profiles some applications that have the potential to make a striking difference in human lif...

Large datasets are increasingly common and are often difficult to interpret. Principal component analysis (PCA) is a technique for reducing the dimensionality of such datasets, increasing interpretability but at the same time minimizing information loss. It does so by creating new uncorrelated variables that successively maximize variance. Finding such new variables, the principal components, reduces to solving an eigenvalue/eigenvector problem, and the new variables are defined by the dataset a...
