Abstract

Programmers are not flexible in integrating devices and sensors for their products due to lack of interoperability between thousands of drivers, ah-hoc APIs and protocols. How to concentrate on the functionality instead of technical details is a major requirement. We propose a development framework which classifies the devices based on their functionality and provides an abstraction layer to escape physical hardware constraints and connectivity issues. We propose the usage of ontologies in order to expose the devices functionality represented by an ontology concept. The problem is addressed in context to the healthcare application domain while using the ANT+ protocol technology.
