The Internet-of-Things (IoT) is a network of interconnected devices with sensing, monitoring and processing functionalities that work in a cooperative way to offer services. Smart buildings, self-driving cars, house monitoring and management, city electricity and pollution monitoring are some examples where IoT systems have been already deployed. Amongst different kinds of devices in IoT, cameras play a vital role, since they can capture rich and resourceful content. However, since multiple IoT devices share the same gateway, the data that is produced from high definition cameras congest the network and deplete the available computational resources resulting in Quality-of-Service degradation corresponding to the visual content. In this thesis, we present an edge-based resource management framework for serving video processing applications in an Internet-of-Things (IoT) environment. In order to support the computational demands of latency-sensitive video applications and utilize effectively the available network resources, we employ edge-based resource management policy. We evaluate our proposed framework with a face recognition use case.
