Comparison of SensorThings API and Sensor Observation Service – Part 2

Summary In the second part of this blog series, we will discuss the interoperability between OGC SOS and SensorThings API. In summary, OGC SensorThings API can interoperate with SOS at both the data level and service interface level. That means SensorThings is backward compatible with SOS. However, SOS cannot interoperate with SensorThings API at the service…

SensorUp to participate the Internet Architecture Board Workshop on IoT Semantic Interoperability

Dr. Liang was invited to participate the IoT Semantic Interoperability Workshop 2016 organized by the Internet Architecture Board. Dr. Liang will present the Open Geospatial Consortium IoT and Sensor Web standards, such as the OGC SensorThings API, OGC Sensor Web Enablement and other relevant location standards for IoT, including IndoorGML, Moving Features, etc.

A Decentralized SensorThings API Architecture for Raspberry Pi

When we designed OGC SensorThings API, efficiency and scalability are two critical requirements.  SensorThings API needs to be efficient so that it can accommodate battery power-constrained, computing power-constrained, and low cost devices. SensorThings API also needs to be scalable because it needs to scale to accommodate a very large number of IoT devices. Achieving these two requirements provides the flexibility…
