Contribute to the evolution, the enrichment and the development of the platforms for the Internet of the Objects in the double perspective of their evolution towards the web of the objects (abstraction of the protocols and connected devices) on the one hand, of the taking account of the inevitable multiplicity of these platforms on the other hand. It will be a matter of starting from existing or developing platforms to make it interoperable, at the application level, and to allow the joint use by applications in concrete target environments (eg buildings or smart cities), taking into account account of the variability of these environments and their heterogeneity. The DataVenue platforms of Orange and FIWARE (https://www.fiware.org/) will be the initial, inclusive choices for these source platforms.
Semantic technologies (semantic web, ontologies) will be implemented to offer a high-level representation allowing this interoperability, both by the addition of semantic information to data integrated in existing platforms, and also by iterative extraction and crossed this semantic information in cases (the most numerous) where it is not initially provided.
Contribution to the implementation of a federation and semantic referencing platform for the Objects web, built on a graph-oriented database.
Design, project management and contributions to the development of semantic information retrieval and enrichment solutions for this platform.
Contribution to the development of semantic enablers for the FIWARE platform.
Contribution to the specification and development of prototype applications of the semantic web of objects jointly exploiting these different platforms.
