Virtual Representations for an Iterative IoT Deployment

  title={Virtual Representations for an Iterative IoT Deployment},
  author={Sebastian R. Bader and M. Maleshkova},
  journal={Companion Proceedings of the The Web Conference 2018},
A central vision of the Internet of Things is the representation of the physical world in a consistent virtual environment. Especially in the context of smart factories the connection of the different, heterogeneous production modules through a digital shop floor promises faster conversion rates, data-driven maintenance or automated machine configurations for use cases which haven't been recognized at design time. Nevertheless, these scenarios demand IoT representations of all participating…

SOLIOT - Decentralized Data Control and Interactions for IoT
This paper proposes SOLIOT—a combination of lightweight industrial protocols with the integration and data control provided by SOLID, a recent approach to decentralize data control and standardize interactions for social applications in the web.
The Semantic Asset Administration Shell
This work provides an ontology for the latest data model specification, created a RML mapping, supply resources to validate the RDF entities and introduce basic reasoning on the Asset Administration Shell data model, and discusses the different assumptions and presentation patterns.
Structuring Reference Architectures for the Industrial Internet of Things
This work contributes to the state of the art by providing a structured analysis of existing reference frameworks, their classifications and the concerns they target, and supply alignments of shared concepts, identify gaps and give a structured mapping of regarded concerns at each part of the respective reference architectures.
Towards Enabling Cyber-Physical Systems in Brownfield Environments - Leveraging Environmental Information to Derive Virtual Representations of Unconnected Assets
The inherent complexity and variety of interaction protocols, data formats and interdependencies of existing deployments in so called brownfield environments hampers the data-driven manufacturing of the future.
A Linked Data Model-View-* Approach for Decoupled Client-Server Applications
It is shown how lifting a suitable data representation of a Web server application run-time to Linked Data allows to build client-server applications following a decoupled Model-View-Presenter-ViewModel design pattern, which removes the need for fixed server-side APIs, detaches clients from server specifics, and allows clients to implement their business logic entirely on expected semantics of the server data.
Exploring Service Science
This study proposes and provides empirical evidence that service digitalization positively moderates the effect of service modularization on service flexibility and shows that service flexibility has a positive effect on service value which is an important factor for firms’ market success.


Semantic Technologies for Realising Decentralised Applications for the Web of Things
This work presents an approach for realising decentralised WoT applications based on three main building blocks: semantics of the devices’ capabilities and interfaces, rules to enable embedding controller logic within device’s interfaces for supporting a decentralised applications, and support for reconfiguring the controller logic at runtime for customising and adapting the application.
Smart Components for Enabling Intelligent Web of Things Applications
This work presents an approach for realising decentralised WoT solutions based on three main building blocks: smart components as an abstraction of a unified approach towards realising the devices’ interfaces, communication mechanisms, semantics of the devices' resources and capabilities, and decision logic, and adaptability of devices' interfaces and interaction at runtime.
Context Aware Computing for The Internet of Things: A Survey
This paper surveys context awareness from an IoT perspective and addresses a broad range of techniques, methods, models, functionalities, systems, applications, and middleware solutions related to context awareness and IoT.
RESTful or RESTless - Current State of Today's Top Web APIs
A thorough analysis of the most popular Web APIs through the examination of their documentation is presented, providing conclusions about common description forms, output types, usage of API parameters, invocation support, level of reusability, API granularity and authentication details.
Investigating Web APIs on the World Wide Web
This paper presents a thorough analysis of the current landscape of Web API forms and descriptions, which has up-to-date remained unexplored and can be used as a basis for devising common standards and guidelines for Web API development.
Automating the Dynamic Interactions of Self-governed Components in Distributed Architectures
An approach is presented which enables components in distributed systems to observe, judge and independently react to dynamic changes in their neighborhood and the target is a delegation of decision making to the single components.
On-the-fly integration of static and dynamic linked data
Methods, based on web architecture that enable (near) real-time access to data sources in a variety of formats and access modalities and enable rapid integration of new live sources by modeling them with respect to a domain ontology, and by using these models to generate a Linked Data interface to access them.
OmniVoke: A Framework for Automating the Invocation of Web APIs
This paper describes a framework that provides a unique entry point for the invocation of most Web APIs that can be found on the Web, by exploiting non-intrusive semantic annotations of HTML pages describing Web APIs in order to capture both their semantics as well as information necessary to carry out their invocation.
