Event-Driven Communication on Application Level in a Smart Home
In recent years, research on the Internet of things focused on wired or wireless information transport. Progress has been made in energy-efficiency, reduction of bandwidth usage and bringing standard Internet protocols to small resource constrained devices. Yet, an application level protocol that not only aims at enabling such devices for remote control but at the same time also offers semantic description features to human users is not found. Based upon previous work, the authors introduce further semantic schema extensions, add event-based communication on application level and compare their approach to existing work.
