The core idea behind amalgamating the physical and virtual (business) world is to seamlessly gather useful information about objects of the physical world and use the information in various applications in order to provide some added value. In the last years we have witnessed a paradigm change, where the rapid advances in computational and communication capabilities of embedded systems, are paving the way towards highly sophisticated networked devices that will be able to carry out a variety of tasks not in a standalone mode as usually done today, but taking into full account dynamic and context specific information, and following dynamic collaborative approaches.
