Smart Objects and the Internet of Things provide unparalleled means to connect the physical world with the digital world, enabling important applications such as Smart Infrastructures, Smart Cities, and SmartToys. But existing systems are typically proprietary and tailored toone specific application and sacrifice interoperability for low power consumption. This hinders widespread adoption.
CALIPSO builds Internet Protocol (IP) connected smart object networks, but with novel methods to attain very low power consumption, thereby providing both interoperability and longlife times. CALIPSO leans on the significant body of work on sensor networks to integrate radio duty cycling and data-centric mechanisms into the IPv6 stack, something that existing work has not previously done. CALIPSO works at three layers: the network, the routing, andthe application layer. We also revisit architectural decisions onnaming, identification, and the use of middle-boxes.
