Extension of the Semantic Sensor Network Ontology for Wireless Sensor Network: The Stimulus-WSNnode-Communication Pattern

This video was recorded at 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Boston 2012. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are designed to collect large amounts of heterogeneous data to monitor environmental phenomenon. Our aim is to adapt WSN nodes communication to their context, in order to optimize the lifetime of the network. Our description of context and WSN characteristics are based on ontologies. Based upon a critical analysis of existing ontologies which formalize the WSN domain, we determine that the Semantic Sensor Network (SSN) ontology is the most suitable to represent the WSN issues. However, as the communication data policy is not characterized either by SSN or by other ontologies, we propose to enrich the SSN ontology with a new pattern describing communication. In this paper, we will first integrate the different concepts related to WSN in the SSN ontology and then we will use the resulting ontology, called Wireless Semantic Sensor Network ontology, in an agri-environmental scenario to illustrate the interest of our approach.
