Abstract: A great problem with existing service discovery middleware solutions (e.g. UPnP, Bluetooth, and Jini etc) is that services available in one platform cannot be easily accessed from services based on another platform which is known as “hidden service problem”. One of the reasons for this incompatibility is a different method used for service description in each of these platforms. This paper highlights the importance of unified, platform-neutral, semantic-oriented device and service descriptions to achieve seamless integration between different technologies and systems for advertising, discovering and invoking services. Moreover, it presents an ontology-driven approach for describing devices and their services which will enable serviceseeking peers to reason about available services and devices, and make intelligent and informed decisions regarding which services to use, and how. We argue that having separate descriptions (ontologies) for device and services that this device offers aims to be more flexible, modular and therefore better design. The proposed device ontology is to be used for description of characteristics of the device that offers a specific service. For development of semantic models of services our analysis shows that making several enhancements of OWL-S (using OWL subclassing) will enable its use as common language for service description. Finally we outline some of the future work that gives a real perspective of the proposal. (More)
