Open Internet of Things (OpenIoT)

OpenIoT creates an open source middleware for getting information from sensor clouds, without having to worry about what exact sensors are used. OpenIoT explores efficient ways to use and manage cloud environments for IoT ‘entities’ and resources (such as sensors, actuators and smart devices) and offering utility-based (i.e. pay-as-you-go) IoT services. OpenIoT will provide instantiations of cloud-based and utility-based sensing services enabling the concept of Sensing as a Service, via an adaptive middleware framework for deploying and providing services in cloud environments. The OpenIoT middleware infrastructure supports flexible configuration and deployment of algorithms for collection, and filtering information streams stemming from the internet-connected objects, while at the same time generating and processing important business/applications events.

OpenIoT is pertinent to a wide range of interrelated scientific and technological areas spanning:

  1. Middleware for sensors and sensor networks,
  2. Ontologies, semantic models and annotations for representing internet-connected objects, along with semantic open-linked data techniques
  3. Cloud/Utility computing, including utility based security and privacy schemes.





The Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development, also called Framework Programmes are funding programmes created by the European Union/European Commission to support and foster research in the European Research Area (ERA).


The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is an independent Australian federal government agency responsible for scientific research.


The Australian National University (ANU) is a national research university located in Canberra, the capital of Australia.
