The development of the Semantic Web of Things (SWoT) is challenged by the nature of IoT architectures where constrained devices are connected to powerful cloud servers in charge of processing remotely collected data. Such an architectural pattern introduces multiple bottlenecks constituting a hurdle for scalability, and degrades the QoS parameters such as response time. This hinders the development of a number of critical and time-sensitive applications. As an alternative to this Cloud-centric

The approach developed in this paper is a contribution in this direction: it aims to enable rule-based processing to be deployed closer to data sources, in order to foster the implementation of semantic-enabled applications. For this purpose, we define a dynamic deployment technique for rule-based semantic reasoning on Fog nodes. This technique has been evaluated according to a strategy improving information delivery delay to applications. The implementation in Java based on SHACL rules has been executed on a platform containing a server, a laptop and a Raspberry Pi, and is evaluated on a smart building use case where both distribution and scalability have been considered.
