A pattern language for smart home applications

  title={A pattern language for smart home applications},
  author={Marjan Alirezaie and K. Hammar and E. Blomqvist},
In this article we outline the details of a SmartHome ontology proposed as a representational model to assist the development process of sensorized environments. The SmartHome ontology is described in terms of its modules representing different aspects including physical and conceptual aspects of a smart environment. We propose the use of the Ontology Design Pattern (ODP) paradigm in order to modularize our proposed solution, while at the same time avoiding strong dependencies between the… Expand

Seeking Prevention of Cognitive Decline in Elders via Activity Suggestion by A Virtual Caregiver
It is shown how the user experience can be enriched with an adaptive configuration encouraging socialization and cognitive training in an autonomous agent residing in the cloud and generating interventions based on users' data. Expand
A Web Corpus for eCare: Collection, Lay Annotation and Learning -First Results-
This position paper puts forward two claims: 1) it is possible to design a dynamic and extensible corpus without running the risk of getting into scalability problems; 2) it was possible to de-constrain a dynamic corpus without facing any of the problems of scalability. Expand


Development of a smart home ontology and the implementation of a semantic sensor network simulator: An Internet of Things approach
A smart home sensor ontology is developed that is a specialized ontology based on the Semantic Sensor Networks (SSN) ontology and a simulation environment for a smart home case is presented using this ontological and early performance results are presented. Expand
Context Ontology Implementation for Smart Home
This paper presents the realization of smart home's context-aware system based on ontology, and discusses the current challenges in realizing the ontology context base. Expand
IoT-O, a Core-Domain IoT Ontology to Represent Connected Devices Networks
IoT-O, a core-domain modular IoT ontology proposing a vocabulary to describe connected devices and their relation with their environment is proposed, and is instantiated in a home automation use case to illustrate how it supports the description of evolving systems. Expand
The Stimulus-Sensor-Observation Ontology Design Pattern and its Integration into the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology
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. Expand
Reasoning for Improved Sensor Data Interpretation in a Smart Home
An ontological representation and reasoning paradigm has been proposed for interpretation of time-series signals that come from sensors observing a smart environment and is inspired form the SSN ontology (Semantic Sensor Network). Expand
Ontology for observations and sampling features, with alignments to existing models
  • S. Cox
  • Computer Science
  • Semantic Web
  • 2017
New OWL ontologies for observations and sampling features, known as om-lite and sam- lite, remove dependencies on elaborate pre-existing ontologies and frameworks, and can therefore be used with minimal ontological commitment beyond the O&M conceptual model. Expand
The SSN ontology of the W3C semantic sensor network incubator group
The SSN ontology is described, which can describe sensors in terms of capabilities, measurement processes, observations and deployments and the use of the ontology in recent research projects is described. Expand
Ontology-based office activity recognition with applications for energy savings
An activity recognition solution that effectively handles multiple-user, multiple-area situations, rapidly recognizing office activities as inputs for building energy and comfort management systems is proposed. Expand
Ontology Design Patterns
In this chapter, components called Ontology Design Patterns (OP) are described, and methods that support pattern-based ontology design are described that support explicit documentation of design rationales. Expand
Considerations regarding Ontology Design Patterns
The Worskhop on Ontology and Semantic Web Patterns (WOP2015, 6th edition) was held on October 11, 2015 in conjunction with the 14th InternationalSemantic Web Conference in Bethlehem, PA, USA and a discussion with the participants regarding the promises and obstacles of ontology design patterns (ODPs for short).
