Expanding GeoWeb to an Internet of Things

A workshop during COM.Geo 2011

Connecting our world with accessible networks is scaling to trillions of everyday objects. The Internet will be augmented with mobile machine-to-machine communications and ad-hoc local network technologies. At the network nodes, information about objects will come from barcodes, RFIDs, and sensors. The location of all objects will be known.  This workshop seeks to explore the role of location in expanding GeoWeb to an Internet of Things.

Workshop  Topics

 

  • Connecting our world with accessible networks is scaling to trillions of everyday objects. The Internet of Things, Pervasive Computing, Sensor Web are research names for this development. Planetary Skin, Smarter Planet and CeNSE are several corporate names. The Internet will be augmented with mobile machine-to-machine communications and ad-hoc local network technologies. At the network nodes, information about objects will come from barcodes, RFIDs, and sensors. The location of all objects will be known. 
  • This workshop seeks to explore the role of location inexpanding GeoWeb to an Internet of Things. The workshop seeks presentations on functions enabled by geographic location and to location relative to surrounding objects. Many of the objects will be indoor in a 3D setting.  The workshop also seeks presentations on relevant technologies such as location determination, geocoding, schemas forpoints of interest, ad-hoc network formation based on location, processing ofinformation of the objects to detect phenomena of interest and location based services. Technology standards will be important for interoperability at this scale, e.g., OpenLS, CityGML, and Sensor Web Enablement standards from the OGC.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published jointly with the COM.Geo Conference proceedings

OGC participation in this workshop is part of the OGC Mobile Internet initiative.
