The SSN ontology of the W3C semantic sensor network incubator group
Sensor Search Techniques for Sensing as a Service Architecture for the Internet of Things
TLDR
A context-aware sensor search, selection, and ranking model, called CASSARAM, is proposed to address the challenge of efficiently selecting a subset of relevant sensors out of a large set of sensors with similar functionality and capabilities.
The Stimulus-Sensor-Observation Ontology Design Pattern and its Integration into the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology
TLDR
The core classes and relationships forming the pattern are discussed in detail and are aligned to the DOLCE foundational ontology to improve semantic interoperability and clarify the underlying ontological commitments.
Context-Aware Sensor Search, Selection and Ranking Model for Internet of Things Middleware
TLDR
CASSARAM is presented, a context-aware sensor search, selection, and ranking model for Internet of Things to address the research challenges of selecting sensors when large numbers of sensors with overlapping and sometimes redundant functionality are available.
Semantic Sensor Network XG Final Report
A Survey of the Semantic Specification of Sensors
TLDR
The state of the art for the semantic specification of sensors, one of the fundamental technologies in the semantic sensor network vision, is reviewed.
The SSN Ontology of the Semantic Sensor Networks Incubator Group
TLDR
The W3C Semantic Sensor Networks Incubator group (the SSN-XG), as one of its activities, produced an ontology to describe sensors and observations — the SSN ontology, which is described in this article.
Reasoning about Sensors and Compositions
TLDR
The paper describes the OWL ontology, presents two example sensor descriptions and shows how standard reasoning and querying techniques can be used to perform tasks including classification and composition.
The Semantic Sensor Network Ontology: A Generic Language to Describe Sensor Assets
TLDR
It is argued that ontologies are an adequate methodology to model sensors and their capabilities and enable reasoning, classification and other types of automation to extend the SWE standards of the OGC.
