Internet architecture for optimisation Sensing Systems (IoSS) will develop, using openly available technological components and closely following the architectural reference models of the IERC and the Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), a prototype of an Internet-based open platform combining service-oriented and event-driven architectures. IoSS places and connects in the same virtual/real plane sensing objects to facilitate their autonomy, cooperation and associations to compose new Internet services. The platform, composed of three spaces, Forge, School and Market, will give support to connect, use, share, train, develop, trade and optimise real sensing entities, virtual sensing resources and systems for improved efficiency and performance in the provision of useful, profitable and reliable information services, in several domains and industrial sectors. The platform acquires, identifies and processes abnormal sensing events that would otherwise be unidentified, in order to build and feed an open-version, freely available and distributed semantic repository of sensing event detection (SED), which is used to update the perception capacities and upgrade the cognition faculties of sensing devices and systems regularly. Finally, the collaborative and proactive computing architecture and community will be deployed and evaluated in order to demonstrate its technical benefits in generating new solutions, markets, and business.
