Mobile devices that use information from sensors such as GPS and accelerometers are becoming widespread today, and web services using a variety of sensor information have appeared. This paper refers to these web services as reality-oriented web services. Since existing frameworks not designed to handle sensor information are useless when developing reality-oriented web services, high development costs are a problem. This paper proposes a model for configuring reality-oriented web services, making a comparison with existing frameworks. The authors discuss the design of a framework using this model and study its application to an actual web service.
