A Real-Time Search Engine for the Web of Things

The increasing penetration of the real world with embedded and globally networked sensors leads to the formation of the Internet of Things, offering global online access to the current state of the real world. The authors argue that on top of this real-time data, a Web of Things is needed, a software infrastructure that allows the construction of applications involving sensor equipped real-world entities living in the Internet of Things. A key service for such an infrastructure is a search engine that supports lookup of real-world entities that exhibit a certain current state as perceived by sensors.
