Standardizing the Web of Things
Seluxit CEO, Daniel Lux, has once again weighed in at the recent joint meeting between W3C and the IETF in Sapporo and Yokohama, Japan (October, 2015). The meeting was held under the auspices of the W3C's Web of Things IG, concerned with driving IoT standards higher up the stack.
Together with Frank Reusch from RWE, Daniel presented a live demonstration of RWE's Lemonbeat protocol with particular focus on the Lemonbeat smart Device Language (LsDL) application layer. The Lemonbeat application layer, recently released to the W3C as a specification draft, tackles many of the current issues that are being addressed to create meaningful device interoperability, and is thereby of great interest to these standardization bodies as they continue to play a central role in the development of the Internet (and the IoT) as well as the Web (and the WoT).
Representatives participated from various companies including Fujitsu, Huawei, Cisco, Ericsson, Panasonic, Samsung, Microsoft and Google.
