Two systems or components have been described by interoperability specifications where working interaction can be engaged. Two IoT devices are one of the examples. The focus is more on semantic interaction with a process that might focus on viewpoints like (1) information exchanges, (2) interactions, and (3) others.
The IoT devices that are connected via protocol with interoperability specification through network includes:
- The device capabilities can be described via semantic descriptions such as temperature measurement.
- The protocols can be described via semantic descriptions such as Wi-Fi for interactions.
- Protocol data units are described via semantic descriptions such as the Celsius data unit or exchanged information.
The benefits of semantic interoperability: —
- The interoperability specification has been improved with the quality of a systematic process that can be applied for interoperability definition.
- As a reference, the specification which resulted is used for interpreting the problem that can be solved. It is mainly used for further verification and validation where a formalized specification is available.
- The specifications can be maintained and extended more straightforwardly. The impact of the modification is difficult to assess in a textual specification of interoperability where a formalized specification is easier to do.
