Semantic Middleware for the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to extending the Internet to devices such as home appliances, consumer electronics, and sensor networks. As multiple heterogeneous devices attempt to create area networks, one of the major challenges is the interoperability and composability of their services. The traditional way to address interoperability is to de ne standards; however, there are many standards and specifications that are incompatible with each other. In this paper, the authors propose an application layer solution for interoperability.
