Towards a semantic world: Smart objects in a virtual world
Eguchi A., Thompson C.
The coming Internet of Things will usher in a semantic world (analogous to the semantic web) where physical objects will be networked so that they can communicate with each other and with humans. This paper identifies protocols that smart objects will need to follow and how to use today's 3D virtual worlds to better design and understand those protocols for tomorrow's smart world. © 2010 IADIS.
