Abstract [en]

This article analyzes the challenges of supporting continual changes of context information in Internet-of-Things applications. These applications require a constant flow of continuously changing information from sensor based sources in order to ensure a high quality-of-experience. However, an uncontrolled flow between sources and sinks on a global scale wastes resources, such as computational power, communication bandwidth, and battery time. In response to these challenges we present a general approach which focuses on four layers where we provide a proposed solution to each layer. We have realized the general model into a proof-of-concept implementation running on devices with limited resources, where we can moderate the information exchange based on relevance and sought after quality-of-experience by the applications. In conclusion, we evaluate our solution and present a summary of our experiences regarding the impact of continuously changing information on the Internet-of-Things.
