Curriculum Vitae

Graduated: 2007, Higher Institute of Industry (HII)-Libya, M.Sc.

Asma Elmangoush received her Msc in Electronic and Computer Engineering form the Higher Institute of Industry (HII) -Libya, where she works as an Assistant Lecturer since 2007 responsible in teaching various courses (e.g Computer Networks, C++ Programmming). Also she is a member of the communication research group@ HII. She has been active in various projects within this group in NGN topics. Her research interests are Quality of Service and IMS. In addition she was a member of consulting team for the Misurata Free Zone (MFZ) Company, the team was responsible to and follow-up the project of building the communication networks and security system in MFZ. 

She has joined the team of Prof. Magedanz since October 2011.


For the last decades, we have witnessed new technological evolutions in the Internet, wireless networks, and sensors fields. Providing the ablity to build smart systems that improve quality of life and enhance environment management. However, most available smart systems are implemented based on proprietary hardware/software solutions, restricting interoperation, which is required for large-scale Smart City solutions. To enable the implementation of a general Smart City solution, a platform is needed to fulfill the communication requirements between heterogeneous access technologies. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication platforms will take the role of controlling the communication between all connected objects and systems, constructing the Internet of Things (IoT).
Currently Asma is member of the OpenMTC team at the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS competence center NGNI, devolping  a prototype implementation of an M2M middleware aiming to provide a standard-compliant platform for Smart City and M2M services.
She is implementing a Software development kit (SDK) for the OpenMTC toolkit, that make the core assets and service capabilities available to third party developers. The OpenMTC SDK consists of a set of high-level APIs which hide internal system details and allow the developer to concentrate on implementing functional M2M application logic.

Abstract Urbanisation trends in both developed and developing countries continue to grow significantly. This presents an opportunity for developing countries to increase future economic growth if they invest in the development of Smart Cities. One aspect of the realisation of Smart Cities revolves around the concept of using information and communication technologies to enhance the quality of living for citizens. This has led to the subject of Smart Cities becoming an important ongoing research topic in both academia and industry. Even as Smart Cities present lucrative and exciting opportunities for the developing world, many challenges stand in the way before they can actually be realised. This work tackles the first steps of moving towards this objective by identifying potential use cases for the Smart City context in developing countries such as South Africa. The focus is on a common problem faced by many such developing countries which is the lack of reliable and efficient management of power distribution. This paper introduces a framework that will allow for the development of Smart City energy management applications. The proposed architecture is based on a Smart City platform and an ETSI M2M/ oneM2M compliant Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication framework.
