SmartSantander proposes a unique in the world city-scale experimental research facility in support of typical applications and services for a smart city. Tangible results are expected to greatly influence definition and specification of Future Internet architecture design from viewpoints of Internet of Things and Internet of Services. The facility will(More)
Smart cities have been recently pointed out by M2M experts as an emerging market with enormous potential, which is expected to drive the digital economy forward in the coming years. However, most of the current city and urban developments are based on vertical ICT solutions leading to an unsustainable sea of systems and market islands. In this work we(More)
Ubiquitous Sensor Network (USN) concept describes the integration of heterogeneous and geographically dispersed Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (WS&AN) into rich information infrastructures for accurate representation and access to different dynamic user’s physical contexts. This relatively new concept envisions future Sensor-Based Services leading to(More)
Ongoing Sensor Web developments make a growing amount of heterogeneous sensor data available to smart devices. This is generating an increasing demand for homogeneous mechanisms to access, publish and share real-world information. This paper discusses, first, an architectural solution based on Next Generation Networks: a pilot Telco Ubiquitous Sensor(More)
The Internet is expanding to reach the real world, integrating the physical world into the digital world in what is called the Real World Internet (RWI). Sensor and actuator networks deployed all over the Internet will play the role of collecting sensor data and context information from the physical world and integrating it into the future RWI. In this(More)
Sensor and actuator networks (SAN) will play a key role in delivering information about and enable interactions with the physical world for next generations of highly autonomous and adaptive Internet services and applications. Current SAN deployments are still low in numbers and represent heterogeneous, vertically closed solutions. True world awareness can(More)
Future Ubiquitous Sensor Networks (USNs) are expected to sense and combine multiple descriptions of user contexts, providing a huge potential for the development of revolutionary context-aware applications bridging the physical and digital worlds. Current Sensor Web initiatives aim to support ubiquitous access to sensor networks, but to make them really(More)
This paper describes a novel architecture to introduce automatic annotation and processing of semantic sensor data within context-aware applications. Based on the well-known state-charts technologies, and represented using W3C SCXML language combined with Semantic Web technologies, our architecture is able to provide enriched higher-level semantic(More)
Current "Internet of Things" concepts point to a future where connected objects gather meaningful information about their environment and share it with other objects and people. In particular, objects embedding Human Machine Interaction (HMI), such as mobile devices and, increasingly, connected vehicles, home appliances, urban interactive infrastructures,(More)
