Generating Data Wrapping Ontologies from Sensor Networks: A Case Study (Short Paper)

Juan F. Sequeda, Óscar Corcho, Asunción Gómez-Pérez
2009 International Semantic Web Conference  
In this paper we make a first step towards enabling the inclusion of sensor network data into these integration approaches, with the automatic generation of data wrapping ontologies for sensor networks  ...  Our approach extends existing ones used for extracting data wrapping ontologies from relational databases, using the schema of sensor network queries and external ontology search and relation discovery  ...  Conclusions and Future Work We have described a method for the automatic generation of data wrapping ontologies from sensor network data.  ...

Data transformation and query management in personal health sensor networks

Mark Roantree, Jie Shi, Paolo Cappellari, Martin F. O'Connor, Michael Whelan, Niall Moyna
2012 Journal of Network and Computer Applications  
In the case study presented in this work, the network is provided by football teams with sensors generating continuous heart rate values during a number of different sporting activities.  ...  This paper describes a process to close this gap by automatically harvesting the raw sensor data and providing semantic enrichment through the addition of context data.  ...  Sensor data, generated from a single sporting event, are kept in their proprietary raw format.  ...
