A Sensor Observation Service extension for Internet of Things

A. Samourkasidis, I. N. Athanasiadis


This work contributes towards extending OGC Sensor Observation Service to become ready for Internet of Things, i.e. can be employed by devices with limited capabilities or opportunistic internet connection. We present an extension based on progressive data transmission, which by-design facilitates selective data harvesting and disruption-tolerant communication. The extension economizes resources, while respects the SOS specification requirement that the client should have no a-priori knowledge of the server capabilities. Empirical experiments in two case studies demonstrate that the extension adds little overhead and may lead to significant performance improvements in certain cases, as for irregular timeseries. Also, the proposed extension is not invasive and backwards compatible with legacy clients.
