Title : The Development of IoT Applications : Requirements and state of the art

Abstract : The Internet of Things (IoT) is a concept that has rapidly evolved in recent years as an umbrella term for interconnected smart objects, services, and applications. The dissemination of the IoT paradigm has a wide potential to produce a considerable impact in the daily lives of human beings with the emergence of new applications and systems from several real-world domains. IoT environments are inherently characterized by a high degree of hardware and software heterogeneity, encompassing devices with different capabilities/functionalities and network protocols. In this context, middleware platforms have arisen as promising solutions to abstract away the specificities of such devices from applications and/or end-users, to promote interoperability among them, and to contribute to facilitate and leverage the development of IoT applications. This talk focuses on presenting the requirements for an IoT platform and some existing solutions in terms of middleware for IoT, sheding the light on the main functionalities of each platform and the challenges to be addressed in future research.
