The vision for the "Web of Things" (WoT) aims at bringing physical objects of the world into the World Wide Web. The Web is constantly evolving and has changed over the last couple of decades and the changes have spurted new areas of growth. The primary focus of the WoT is to bridge the gap between physical and digital worlds over a common and widely used platform, which is the Web. Everyday physical "things", which are not Web-enabled, and have limited or zero computing capability, can be accommodated within the Web. As a step towards this direction, this work focuses on the specification of a thing, its descriptors and functions that could participate in the process of its discovery and operations. Besides, in this model for the WoT, we also propose a semantic Web-based architecture to integrate these things as Web resources to further demystify the realization of the WoT vision. © 2011 IEEE.
