Abstract

Sensor data is crucial for mobile applications to support the user in the field. Several mobile applications are available for accessing such sensor data. However, a comprehensive approach for discovering such sensor data in the Sensor Web according to the user’s context (i.e. the location) has not been proposed yet. This article describes an approach for discovering data and services in the Sensor Web through mobile applications. The approach is demonstrated by an air quality scenario and is implemented based on Free and Open Source Software.
