Intelligent IPv6 based iot network monitoring and altering system on Cooja framework

J. Subramaniam, Y.L. Ho, S. Manickam


Internet of Things (IoT) has pretty much taken the digital world by storm. The conventional
way of information being produced and outputted is through machine to machine
communication.But, with sensors acting as middleware between this communications, itbrings us with even higher state of connectivity and interactivity. On the basis of these, this paper discusses and addresses the issues of packet monitoring of IoT device simulations in Cooja framework. Addressing this issue is tantamount to addressing the security and packet loss issue in Cooja framework; a simulator provided by Contiki operating system to test, develop and run IoT enabled systems.

Keywords: IoT; Cooja framework; Contiki OS; packet monitoring.
