Abstract

We present the Open Object, a framework for distributing capabilities over a system of inter-connected physical objects. We focus on allowing lightweight objects to not only share their capabilities with other objects but also to outsource capabilities when needed, in order to fulfil a user’s goal. We exemplify our approach with a smart home scenario and a service-oriented implementation.
