Sono stati tra i primi ad intuirlo. La “vera” Internet of Things, quella già pronta ad offrire soluzioni funzionanti, si chiama Web of Things. Non fosse altro perché lassù, “in alto nello stack”, uno standard -una lingua franca- già esiste(*). E funziona.
“EVRYTHNG is the Internet of Things Smart Products Platform that connects any consumer product to the Web, and manages real-time data to drive applications. The world’s leading consumer product manufacturers work with EVRYTHNG to manage billions of intelligent online identities in the cloud for their products, deliver real-time interactive experiences and support services to consumers, and connect with the ecosystem of other applications and products in their digital lives”.
(*) Rather than re-inventing completely new standards, the Web of Things reuses existing and well-known Web standards used in the programmable Web (e.g., REST, HTTP, JSON), semantic Web (e.g., JSON-LD, Microdata, etc.), the real-time Web (e.g., Websockets) and the social Web (e.g., oauth or social networks).
