English abstract:
Current trends and advancements in the Internet of Things and the Semantic Web have already found their way into the domain of building automation. As machine-to-machine communication and integration of heterogeneous building automation technologies are of increasing importance, interoperability is a necessary precondition. In order to support building automation communication, a customized set of services needs to be available. Additionally, semantics of exchanged information has to be described in a machine-readable way to enable automatic interpretation of message contents. In this work, an interface based on Web technologies and Semantic Web standards is presented, which supports platform-independent machine-to-machine communication for building automation. A requirements analysis for such an interface leads to the definition of a service-oriented architecture. The semantics of exchanged message contents is described in an ontology that provides the basis for a common understanding. Moreover, feasibility and hardware requirements of the proposed approach are evaluated.
