Distributed and Collaborative Measurement Systems: A Glimpse Into the Future

  • Online

Distributed measurement systems are becoming pervasive in our daily life and collaborative networks are becoming more and more common so there is the necessity to be aware of the real meaning and implications of terms ‘distributed’ and ‘collaborative’.

This tutorial is designed to let the audience to be acquainted with the different architectures of distributed measurement systems and to learn how to design a distributed measurement network, how to add collaborative functionalities and what are the implications in terms of safety and privacy of the collaborative options.

The tutorial is conceived with an initial lecture part, which discusses the different architectures, which can be used to arrange a distributed network, the possibilities offered by the collaboration between used on an effortless basis and the risks in terms of security and privacy and a final part which shows an example of practical implementation.
