Abstract: In this work, we present a concrete framework, based on web services-oriented architecture, for integrating small programmable objects in the web of things.
Functionality and data gathered by the Small Programmable Objects (SPO) are exposed using Web Services. Based on this, by exploiting XML encoding, SPO can be comprehensible by any web application. The architecture proposed is focused in providing secure and efficient interoperability between SPO and the web.
Additionally, the proposed architecture provides management capabilities for deploying, maintaining and operating SPO applications across multiple networks.
We present the multilayer architecture of our system and its implementation, which uses a combination of Java Standard and Micro Editions. Finally, we present a case study presenting our implementation. In this application we use SunSPOTs, which are wireless network motes developed by Sun Microsystems.
Abstract: Fun in Numbers (FinN) is a platform for developing and playing mobile, locative and collaborative distributed games
using wireless sensors. Using FinN, a very large and diverse set of games can be enhanced, by maximizing the on-game
experience and collecting statistics for off-line, web-based view. At the same time the essence of such games remains the
same: fun in large numbers, in every place and at any time. FinN is implemented using a combination of JAVA Standard
and Mobile editions, while on the hardware part we use wireless sensor devices, called SunSPOTs. In the future, mobile
phones that have some kind of sensors embedded, or other custom devices can be used for the same purpose. We report a
number of examples of games created with FinN and briefly present the architecture of our platform.
