© 2016 IEEE. Sensing as a Service (SenaaS) is emerging as a prominent element in the middleware linking together the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Web of Things (WoT) layers of future ubiquitous systems. An architecture framework is discussed in this paper whereby things are abstracted into services via embedded sensors which expose a thing as a service. The architecture acts as a blueprint to guide software architects realizing WoT applications. Web-enabled things are eventually appended into Web platforms such as Social Web platforms to drive data and services that are exposed by these things to interact with both other things and people, in order to materialize further the future social Web of Things. Research directions are discussed to illustrate the integration of SenaaS into the proposed WoT architectural framework.
