Semantic control method of the Internet of Things based on Linked Open Data
Variety of systems were developed based on the Internet of Things (IoT) concept including autonomous systems, which operate without human intervention. Development of such systems requires not only data from devices, but also interaction between these devices. It is necessary that one IoT-system could control other devices behavior. There are several problems related to that task including problem of incompatibility of different IoT APIs, requiring software support of each device in the system. This problem considerably restricts joint use of different devices from different IoT-systems. In this paper there is a method of control over the IoT-system is proposed. This method solves the problem described above. The method includes development of IoT API based on ontologies using Linked Open Data. The IoT interaction in the described method involves using control requests in the form of ontologies. The new ontologies synchronization mechanism is described which implemented links in Linked Open Data datasets allowing the dictionaries unification.
