Web of Things aka "Internet of Things”
“Web of Things is about extending the Internet of Things [Ashton, 2009] concept beyond the connection of things and considering issues like heterogeneity, scalability and usability with respect to progressive computing” [Mayer et al., 2013]. By introducing web technologies, the concept overpasses Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication and incorporates interaction with users into the landscape. This lecture will present conceptual and technical overviews of about IoT and WoT including:
- Internet of Things (Things, Properties, Sensors)
- Architecture layers
- Survey about existing technologies & platforms
- Development frameworks
- Application domains
- Challenges of IoT
- The Web as a Solution
- Related standards and frameworks.
Finally a real world project will be presented e.g. a low-cost and reliable indoor localization system using state-of-the-art Web of Things technologies targeted to support the daily activities of users with mild cognitive impairments and their carers.
