Abstract

© 2020, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. In the context of an Internet-of-Things (IoT) ecosystem, this paper discusses two necessary stages for managing federations of things. The first stage defines things in terms of duties and non-functional properties that define the quality of these duties. And, the second stage uses these properties to assign appropriate things to future federations. Specialized into ad hoc and planned, federations are expected to satisfy needs and requirements of real-life situations like traffic control that arise at run-time. A set of experiments using a mix of real and simulated datasets, demonstrate the technical doability of thing assignment to federations and are presented in the paper, as well.
