Advances in future computing and communications to support Internet-of-Things (IoT) are becoming more important as the need to better utilize resources and make them energy efficient. As a result, it is predicted that intelligent devices and networks, including wireless sensor networks (WSN), will become the new interfaces to support future IoT applications. However, many open challenges remain, which are mostly due to the resource constraints imposed by various hardware platforms and complex characteristics of applications wishing to make use of IoT systems. Thus, it becomes critically important to study how the current approaches incorporating both computing and communications in this area can be improved, and at the same time better understand the opportunities for the research community to utilize the proposed approaches. To this end, this article presents an overview of our latest research results in sensor edge computing and lightweight communication protocols as well as their potential applications.
