Abstract

In this demo we present the Trusted Tiny Things system that can be used to interrogate Internet of Things (IoT) devices and present users with information about their characteristics and capabilities. The system consists of a mobile application used to retrieve information about IoT devices supported by RESTful web services. In order to infer IoT device capabilities our services perform reasoning over the provenance of devices characterised using a number of Semantic Web technologies. In this demo we illustrate the use of the system with two distinct IoT devices: an NFC tag used at bus stops to provide a means to access real-time bus timetables, and a black box device installed into vehicles by insurance companies to track driving behaviour.
