Abstract

With great advance in information technology and broadband networks, the interconnected networked home devices are becoming increasingly popular. Number of heterogeneous networked devices and services which belong to the traditionally separated functional islands such as PC (i.e. Internet), mobile, CE broadcasting, and home automation, not working together can be found in our today’s home. Merging of these devices and services would offer home individual residents user-friendly, intelligent, and meaningful interfaces to handle home information and services. The semantic ontology based modelling of home services can enable interoperability of heterogeneous services. The ontology may facilitate clear description on how far each device is suitable for different kinds of information and different interaction demands. This paper is presenting an analysis on the kind of vocabulary ontologies necessary in different functional domains to cope with heterogeneity of service descriptions. The ontology based rich representation of services will facilitate an efficient service discovery, integration and composition.
