In this work, we expanded the Arduino's capabilities by adding an 802.15.4 wireless module, in order to expose its functionality as a Web of Things node. The second contribution of our work is a careful description of the necessary steps to make a heterogeneous network interoperate and the implementation of a network stack for the 4 most representative hardware platforms, as used by the relevant research community (Arduino, SunSPOT, TelosB, iSense), in the form of a software library, named mkSense, which enables their intercommunication. Moreover, we describe the design and implementation of a software library which can be used for building “intelligent software” for the Web of Things.
