The integration of social networking concepts into the Internet of things has led to the Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, according to which objects are capable of establishing social relationships in an autonomous way with respect to their owners with the benefits of improving the network scalability in information/service discovery. Within this(More)
The integration of social networking concepts into the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the so called Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, according to which the objects are capable of establishing social relationships in an autonomous way with respect to their owners. The benefits are those of improving scalability in information/service discovery(More)
In this paper, we analyze the combination of Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) with the Social Internet of Things (SIoT), i.e., the Social Internet of Vehicles (SIoV). In the SIoV every vehicle is capable of establishing social relationships with other vehicles in an autonomous way with the intent of creating an overlay social network that can be exploited(More)
The social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm, in which objects establish social-like relationships, presents several interesting features to improve network navigability, object trustworthiness, and interactions between elements across IoT platforms. Implementations of the SIoT model envision cyber counterparts of physical objects--social virtual(More)
The convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies with the social networking concepts has led to a new paradigm called the Social Internet of Things (SIoT), where the objects mimic the human behavior and create their own relationships based on the rules set by their owner. This is aimed at simplifying the complexity in handling the communications(More)
This paper presents Lysis, which is a cloud-based platform for the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The major features that have been followed in its design are the following: each object is an autonomous social agent; the platform as a service (PaaS) model is fully exploited; reusability at different layers is considered; the data is(More)
The Social Internet of Things (SIoT) is a paradigm which is rapidly gaining ground in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain. In the SIoT objects can establish social-like relationships between each others autonomously. In this paper a solution is presented that integrates the SIoT concept in the architecture proposed within the INPUT project. More(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating a world where physical objects are seamlessly integrated to provide advanced and intelligent services for human beings in their day-to-day life style. The realization of complex applications comes from the collaboration of groups of objects; in such a network, objects seek other devices that can provide the services(More)
