The emergence of handheld devices associated with wireless technologies has introduced new challenges for middleware. First, mobility is becoming a key characteristic; mobile devices may move around different areas and have to interact with different types of networks and services, and may be exposed to new communication paradigms. Second, the increasing… (More)
This chapter deals with interoperability among pervasive networked systems, in particular accounting for the heterogeneity of protocols from the application down to the middleware layer, which is mandatory for today’s and even more for tomorrow’s open and highly heterogeneous networks. The chapter then surveys existing approaches to middleware… (More)
Interoperability remains a challenging and growing problem within distributed systems. A range of heterogeneous network and middleware protocols which cannot interact with one another are now widely used, for example, the set of remote method invocation protocols, and the set of service discovery protocols. In environments where systems and services are… (More)
TheAmigo Interoperability Framework providesmiddlewarelayermechanisms that enable integratingheterogeneous networked devices and services. It includes a service discovery and interaction interoperability architecture and a domotic architecture, which have been tested in combination in a proof-of-concept prototype.
The emergence of networked devices in the home has made it possible to develop applications that control a variety of household functions. However, current devices communicate via a multitude of incompatible protocols, and thus gateways are needed to translate between them. Gateway construction, however, requires an intimate knowledge of the relevant… (More)
Interoperability remains a significant challenge in today’s distributed systems; it is necessary to quickly compose and connect (often at runtime) previously developed and deployed systems in order to build more complex systems of systems. However, such systems are characterized by heterogeneity at both the application and middleware-level, where… (More)
The Amigo project aims to develop a networked home system enabling the ambient intelligence / pervasive computing vision by effectively integrating devices and their hosted services in today’s home. The Amigo system architecture poses limited technology-specific restrictions, supporting interoperability among heterogeneous services.
The emergence of portable computers and wireless technologies has introduced new challenges for middleware. Mobility brings new requirements and is becoming a key characteristic. Mobile devices may move around different areas and have to interact with different types of networks, services and may be exposed to new communication paradigms. Thus, mobile… (More)
