WebConf Information

Web of Things Architecture Task Force

The WoT Architecture task force is responsible for the abstract architecture and interoperability profiles for the Web of Things.

Normative Deliverables

Currently TF work is focused on two normative deliverables:

WoT Architecture

The WoT Architecture specification describes the abstract architecture for the W3C Web of Things. It defines the terminology that is used by all other WoT building blocks. The specification defines a conceptual framework that can be mapped onto a variety of concrete deployment scenarios.

Editors draft: https://w3c.github.io/wot-architecture/

WoT Profile

The WoT Profile Specification defines a Profiling Mechanism and a WoT Core Profile, which enables out of the box interoperability among things and devices. Out of the box interoperability implies, that devices can be integrated into various application scenarios without deep level adaptations. Typically only minor configuration operations are necessary (such as entering a network key, or IP address) to use the device in a certain scenario. These actions can be done by anyone without specific training.
