Standards-Based Worldwide Semantic Interoperability for IoT

January 18th, 2017|Publications|

The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered to be the next step in the Internet evolution. A common complaint is the lack of accepted standards and the huge fragmentation of the IoT market. Many international organizations are working on defining standards for the IoT. Notably, oneM2M [1] is defining an international standard for IoT data exchange on a world-wide scale. The second problem tackled by oneM2M is integration of existing IoT platforms (e.g. OIC and AllJoyn) as well as the [...]

Digitising the Industry – Internet of Things Connecting the Physical, Digital and Virtual Worlds

October 4th, 2016|Publications|

The IoT is now a global happening that is requiring cooperation at international level to address its key challenges. Europe has established as a priority the international cooperation on IoT research and innovation. The work revolves around aligning strategies and plans for IoT globalisation but also exploring differentiations, and specificities for local exploitation of IoT. Notice: EU is cooperating with African countries on cost-effective open IoT innovation; Europe is supporting Brazil to build-up its IoT ecosystem supported onEUbest practices; the [...]

Exploitation of Social IoT for Recommendation Services

October 4th, 2016|Publications|

Internet of Things (IoT) applications are generally developed in a vertical manner, i.e., each IoT application is developed for a certain scenario which generally do not share data with IoT applications for recommendation services. This leads to an inefficient exploitation of other IoT service applications. In fact, such recommendation services can be achieved with the help of Social IoT (SIoT) by using data generated by various IoT applications. SIoT builds a profile of objects based on IoT applications data that [...]
