Definition Edit

The Web of Things (WoT) is an evolution of the Internet of Things where everyday devices and objects are connected by fully integrating them into the Web. Examples of smart devices and objects are wireless sensor networks, ambient devices, household appliances, RFID or NFC tagged objects, etc.

Unlike in the many systems that exist for the Internet of Things, the Web of Things is about re-using the Web standards to connect the quickly expanding ecosystem of embedded devices built into everyday smart objects. Well-accepted and understood standards and blueprints (such as URI, HTTP, REST, Atom, etc.) are used to access the functionality of the smart objects.
