Ontology Description
Objects connected by sensors that exchange data with other devices via the Internet have become ubiquitous. The wide variety of Internet of Things applications developed in recent years represents the motivation for seeking a scalable model and organizing technologies, tools, and related concepts. Ontologies are important tools for cataloging information, analyzing complex domains, and developing different systems. The paper defines the IoT-TTA ontology of terms related to the Internet of Things technologies, tools, and applications and highlights how it can be modeled using semantic technologies to obtain an efficient and reliable model on the semantic web. Whereas the IoT-TTA ontology includes prefixes and annotations for integration into open vocabularies on the web, the interoperability is ensured by the Flow-Service-Quality semantics based on constraints on the RDF graph and the statistical preprocessing of data is carried out by SPARQL queries. Finally, the paper discusses different ontology approaches, quality parameters and normalized experimental results, then concludes with limitations, open questions, and a synthesis of overall insights.
