At the Internet of Things workshop of the OGC TC meeting in Brussels, we presented the SenseBox project which we are conducting together with the SWSL group at the Institute for Geoinformatics of the Uni Münster.
Besides demonstrating the SenseBox project, we gave recommendations for bringing the Internet (or better Web) of Things field together with the standardization efforts at OGC. Standardized REST APIs for things as well as well-defined JSON encodings for exchanging data about / from things could be an interesting contribution of the OGC to this emerging technology field. Similar suggestions were made by other particiapnts. E.g., Ben Pirt from the Internet of Things platform pachube announced their interest in OGC and standardized protocols for the Internet of Things.
