Hi Ted

I’ve looked at this issue in some depth in the context of the design for what is now BG’s Hive Active Heating system, including a couple of relevant patents. While at the high level, the issue is no harder than enterprise integration (!), it’s not practical to get close to that level of maturity as there is so little control over the Things.  

From my experience, I found that semantic interoperability can only be achieved by:
a/ simplifying end physical real-world integration points as much as  possible (ie the sensors and actuators)
b/ focusing initially on understanding the information timing and error constraints on the compute nodes.
c/ enforcing behavioural and testability constraints on sensors/actuators.

Only when these basics are in place can anything like a reliable IoT system be deployed with sensible operational support economics. At that stage, the semantics can be implemented in the software layers, although many of the semantic issues are still to do with behavioural limitations, rather than focusing on ‘happy path’ behaviours.

Are my experience and conclusions way off the mark of the research community, or am I comparing different problem spaces?

cheers

It is widely acknowledged that interoperability is the key to achieve the full potential of the IoT ecosystem. Due to the highly dynamic nature of the IoT, a strong need of interoperability at data level has emerged so that it becomes easier to combine/aggregate, process, manage and store the data/event coming from heterogeneous data sources. Several European and international IoT research projects have shown the semantic interoperability to address the problem. Standard development organizations (W3C, oneM2M, AIOTI WG3) also recognize this. The next step is to develop test methodologies and tools that validate the semantic compliance and interoperability among systems under test. Such tools are of urgent need to boost the acceptance and adoption of the semantic technologies by the general IoT market. This workshop will examine the current landscape on semantic interoperability and create a platform for advance discussion on the same. The technical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
