Demo abstract: Human-CoAP interaction with Copper

We introduce 'Copper,' a generic browser for the Internet of Things based on the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP). Current estimates foresee that the number of networked embedded devices encompassed by the Internet of Things will be vast. Additionally, most systems will be optimized for the constrained environment with its limited energy and bandwidth. These factors make it difficult for users to observe and control the devices. Thus, a major problem will be node and network management,

By adopting well-known patterns from the Web, such as browsing, bookmarking, and linking, we provide a user-friendly management tool for networked embedded devices. By integrating it into the Web browser, we allow for intuitive interaction and a presentation layer that is originally missing in the CoAP protocol suite.
