Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is based on ubiquitous smart devices equipped with sensors, actuators and tags which are connected to the Internet. Combining their sensing and actuation capabilities yields large possibilities for businesses to provide customers with value-added services in terms of energy management, entertainment, security and convenience. Businesses may use IoT data to develop innovative business models thus further increasing the value and usefulness of smart devices. Despite these potentials, providers of IoT platforms struggle to tackle some challenges which come with the design and operation of the platforms. In this paper, we propose an architectural concept which aims to bridge this gap and provides an integrated environment for smart device integration, data and analytics as well as IoT-aware processes. We also present the Smart Energy Platform (SEPL) as an instantiation of the proposed concept to evaluate it in terms of its functional feasibility and show that it addresses the issues current IoT platforms face.
