Web of Things ‘Application Platform’

Web of Things ‘Application Platform’

New RFID or NFC applications will be built with the Web of Things Application Platform consisting of several software building blocks of mobile or cloud based applications. The Web of Things application platform is based on the principles of event-driven applications and adequate messaging standards such as MQTT, COAP or Websockets. When data about real world things is stored in the Web, how can this data and software application are protected against misuse? To support software maker in this aspect, information security measures will be integrated in all relevant software components. In this way data protection challenges will be overcome. The project further investigates new user interaction patterns needed to interact with real world objects in the Web. For example concepts of the human side of the Web of Things community will be analysed and adapted appropriately. Finally, the project will involve the development of five future application demonstrators incorporating the core components of the developed Web of Things application platform.
