An ontology-driven communication architecture for spontaneous ineroperability in Home Automation systems

J. Juárez Montojo, J.A. Rodríguez-Mondéjar, R. Garcia-Castro

Current solutions to the interoperability problem in Home Automation systems are based on a priori agreements where protocols are standardized and later integrated through specific gateways. In this regards, spontaneous interoperability, or the ability to integrate new devices into the system with minimum planning in advance, is still considered a major challenge that requires new models of connectivity. In this paper we present an ontology-driven communication architecture whose main contribution is that it facilitates spontaneous interoperability at system model level by means of semantic integration. The architecture has been validated through a prototype and the main challenges for achieving complete spontaneous interoperability are also evaluated.

Keywords: Ontology-driven systems; spontaneous interoperability; Home Automation
