Abstract

Extending the current Internet and providing connection, communication, and internetworking between devices and physical objects, or 'things,' is a growing trend that's often referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). Integrating real-world data into the Web, with its large repositories of data, and providing Web-based interactions between humans and IoT resources is what the Web of Things (WoT) stands for.
