Smart city consists of heterogenous Internet of Things (IoTs) and urban application systems. To achieve smart city integration, One critical challenge is that these heterogenous systems are implemented independently, and hard to communicate with each other. To address this issue, the authors propose an application-driven heterogeneous IoTs architecture. Under this architecture, all kinds of resources are uniformly described by extracting the common characteristics of application requirements in smart cities to form independent and complete capability components, resources are reconfigured according to application requirements to provide adaptive resources and differentiated services for urban applications. The results show that our proposed architecture can effectively solve the problem of deep integration of heterogeneous Internet of things.
