In this paper, a first approach for evaluating the Quality of Experience (QoE) for IoT (Internet of Things) applications is presented. Firstly, a layered IoT architecture is analysed to understand which QoE influence factors have to be considered in relevant application scenarios. Secondly, we introduce the concept of Multimedia IoT (MIoT) and define a layered QoE model aimed at evaluating and combining the contributions of each influence factor to estimate the overall QoE in MIoT applications. Finally, we present a vehicular MIoT application that has been used to conduct subjective quality assessments to verify the performance of the proposed approach.

Abstract

In this paper, a first approach for evaluating the Quality of Experience (QoE) for IoT (Internet of Things) applications is presented. Firstly, a layered IoT architecture is analysed to understand which QoE influence factors have to be considered in relevant application scenarios. Secondly, we introduce the concept of Multimedia IoT (MIoT) and define a layered QoE model aimed at evaluating and combining the contributions of each influence factor to estimate the overall QoE in MIoT applications. Finally, we present a vehicular MIoT application that has been used to conduct subjective quality assessments to verify the performance of the proposed approach.
