Abstract

More and more devices are connected over the internet and the sensor data they receive from the environment is monitored by other applications or end users. This technology is called the Internet of Things. Sensors used in the Internet of Things can be very diverse. When a sensor, of a certain type or has certain characteristics to be used in different Internet of Things applications, is required to be found over the Internet, this search process can be very difficult to do because of the excess of sensors and the fact that sensor information is located in different structures over the Internet. In order to solve this problem, the use of Semantic Web technologies was considered and a study was carried out within this scope. With this study, a data model was created by first deriving the characteristics and values of certain types of sensors, and then a sensor application ontology was created using the OWL language. An application program was then developed using the Java programming language and the sensor application ontology developed was queried through the SPARQL query language.
