In this paper, we discuss the integration of Wireless
Sensor Networks (WSN) and smart objects with the Web. We present a set of research challenges which we believe are the most important ones rising from this integration and propose a prototype system, Uberdust, which addresses such challenges. Uberdust is a brokerage web service for connecting smart objects to the Internet of Things, providing storage, sharing and discovery of real-time and historical data from smart objects, devices & building installations around the world via the Web. Our system provides high-level language-independent APIs so IoT application developers may choose their favorite programming or scripting languages.
