  3. 3. Ph. Shaun Wood, the Web of Things WoT
  4. 4. Web of Things• things are “smart enough” to be connected to the Internet and...• communicate using HTTP protocol• Web protocols as a “lingua franca” for the WoT
  5. 5. Ph. Anthony Mattox,• It allows to: • connect objects to the Web • connect objects between them• connections can be established not only between “physical objects”...• ...but also involving “virtual objects” (Web services, social networks, Twitter, Foursquare, Pachube, ...)
  6. 6. Ph. Mike Paraimpu Web of Things Things + Services
  7. 7. Ph. Windell Oskay model: 3 basic Sensors, Actuators, Connections concepts
  8. 8. Sensors • any thing capable to produce data • transmit data toward Paraimpu using HTTP (REST) • anemometers, Arduino boards, but also Foursquare, Pachube, other services in the Web... Ph. Jessica Wilson,
  9. 9. Ph. Jayvee jayveemojar/Actuators • any thing able to receive/ consume data and perform an action • receive data from Paraimpu using HTTP (REST) • X10 lighting, alarm systems, but also Twitter, Facebook, Google Calendars, ...
  10. 10. Ph. supermaryan• Always involve: • a Sensor: the source • an Actuator: the destination• they are configurable: • data filtering • data mapping

  14. 14. The Workspace everything is under control
  15. 15. The Palette• it allows to add new Sensors and new Actuators: • Generic Sensors and Actuators • Specialized Sensors/ Actuators: Pachube, Twitter, Arduino, Facebook, ... • ...and others coming soon!
