Abstract:With the ever-growing adoption of smart, peripheral consumer devices, users enter a world where they can monitor their health and every day activities. As such, the advent of smart homes allows for the interconnectedness of all personal devices to be available on a unified platform. The efforts to unite all device management under a single banner has proven to be a difficult task, both in academia, and in consumer technologies. As mobility and limited power became the core of everyday computing, previous device management architectures have shown to be resource intensive and inapplicable to today's usage scenarios. This Master's Thesis presents a novel device architecture which enables efficient communication between devices, optimizes for system health, and utilizes all computing ability within its reach. Additionally, to aid in device intercommunication, the Master's Thesis also outlines a novel passive synchronization technique for peripheral devices which reduces overall energy consumption spent on scanning for other nodes.
