This work tries to improve the communication link of the data transmission in wireless sensor monitoring. The upstream communication link is usually based on standard IP technologies, but the downstream side is always masked with the proprietary protocols used for the wireless link (like ZigBee, Bluetooth, RFID, etc.). This work presents a novel solution (WebTag) for a direct IP based access to a sensor tag over the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for secure applications. WebTag allows a direct web access to the sensor tag by means of a standard web browser, it reads the sensor data, configures the sampling rate and implements IP based security policies. It is, definitely, a new step towards the evolution of the Internet of Things paradigm.}, language = {en}, number = {7}, urldate = {2013-12-03TZ}, journal = {Sensors}, author = {Echevarria, Juan Jose and Ruiz-de-Garibay, Jonathan and Legarda, J. and Alvarez, Maite and Ayerbe, Ana and Vazquez, Juan Ignacio}, month = jun, year = {2012}, keywords = {Internet of Things, Q1, TCP/IP tunneling, Wireless sensor networks, embedded web server, jcr1.953, near field communication, sensor tag, webtag, wireless sensor monitoring}, pages = {8675--8690} }']

Traditionally WSN have been focused on capturing data, which was later analyzed and interpreted in a server with more computational power. In this kind of scenario the problem of representing the sensor information needs to be addressed. Every node in the network might have different sensors attached; therefore their correspondent packet structures will be different. The server has to be aware of the meaning of every single structure and data in order to be able to interpret them. Multiple sensors, multiple nodes, multiple packet structures (and not following a standard format) is neither scalable nor interoperable. Context aware systems have solved this problem with the use of semantic technologies. They provide a common framework to achieve a standard definition of any domain. Nevertheless, these representations are computationally expensive, so a WSN cannot afford them. The work presented in this paper tries to bridge the gap between the sensor information and its semantic representation, by defining a simple architecture that enables the definition of this information natively in a semantic way, achieving the integration of the semantic information in the network packets. This will have several benefits, the most important being the possibility of promoting every WSN node to a real semantic information source.}, number = {28}, urldate = {2013-10-28TZ}, booktitle = {Ad {Hoc} {Networks}}, publisher = {Springer Berlin Heidelberg}, author = {Larizgoitia, Iker and Muguira, Leire and Vazquez, Juan Ignacio}, editor = {Zheng, Jun and Mao, Shiwen and Midkiff, Scott F. and Zhu, Hua}, month = jan, year = {2010}, keywords = {Wireless sensor networks, context-aware, rdf}, pages = {731--746} }']

Furthermore, the number of applications that require context information as the user's location will increase in the coming years. However, this issue still has not been solved indoors due to the RF (Radio Frequency) signals' behaviour in this kind of scenarios. In this paper, we present a robust, easy to deploy and flexible indoor localization system based on ZigBee Wireless Sensor Networks. It is important to mention that our localization system is based on RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) level measurements since this information can be obtained directly from the messages exchanged between nodes, so no extra hardware is required. Our localization system consists of two phases: calibration and localization. Anytime a blind node needs to be located, our system performs calibration using a matrices system, so that the environment can be characterized, taking into account possible changes on it since the last request. Then, in the localization phase, the central server processes all the information and calculates the blind node's position with the new iterative algorithm we present. With this indoor positioning algorithm we can estimate the blind node's position with a good resolution (3 m average error), so we can say that this ZigBee localization algorithm provides very promising results.}, booktitle = {2010 {International} {Conference} on {Indoor} {Positioning} and {Indoor} {Navigation} ({IPIN})}, author = {Larra\xf1aga, Janire and Muguira, Leire and Lopez-Garde, Juan Manuel and Vazquez, Juan Ignacio}, month = sep, year = {2010}, note = {00013}, keywords = {Accuracy, Adaptive Algorithm, Bluetooth, Fingerprint recognition, Indoor Positioning, Peer to peer computing, RF signal, RSSI, Servers, Wireless sensor networks, Zigbee, adaptive ZigBee based indoor positioning algorithm, calibration, flexible indoor localization system, navigation, radiocommunication, received signal strength indicator, wireless communication, wireless sensor network, zigloc}, pages = {1--8} }"]

Thus, the devices, which always accompany us, will behave as electronic butlers who assist us in our daily tasks, by interacting with the smart objects (everyday objects augmented with computational services) in our whereabouts. In order to achieve such goal, this paper proposes an AmI-enabling framework providing two main functions: a) facilitate the development and deployment of smart objects and b) transform mobile devices into universal remote controllers of those smart objects.}, number = {3}, journal = {Journal of Universal Computer Science (J.UCS)}, author = {L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego and V\xe1zquez, Juan Ignacio and Garc\xeda, Daniel and Fern\xe1ndez, Javier and Garc\xeda, Iv\xe1n and Sainz, David and Almeida, Aitor}, month = mar, year = {2006}, keywords = {AI for health, EMI{\\textasciicircum}2, Smart Spaces, ambient intelligence, intelligent environments, jcr0.338, middleware, pervasive computing, q4}, pages = {297--314} }']

Many network operators deem that the future of the business on data transmission lies on M2M. In parallel, the application of robotics is progressively becoming more widespread. Traditionally, robotics has only been applied to industrial environments, but lately some more exoteric (e.g. domestic) robots have arisen. Anyhow, those robots usually offer very primitive communication means. Few researchers have considered that a solution to this issue would be to combine those two emerging fields. This paper describes our experiences combining M2M with robotics to create a fleet of MicroBots, which are remotely controllable through GPRS connection links. Those robots can be used in dangerous environments to gather material samples or simply for surveillance and security control. A sophisticated 3-tier architecture is proposed that combined with a purposely built protocol, optimized for wireless transmission, makes feasible the real-time control of remote devices. 1}, booktitle = {The {Fourth} {International} {Workshop} on {Wireless} {Information} {Systems} ({WIS} 2005)}, author = {Lopez de Ipi\xf1a, Diego and V\xe1zquez, I\xf1aki and Ruiz de Garibay, Jonathan and Sainz, David}, year = {2005}, keywords = {Microbotics, PDA, Wireless, ambient intelligence, commbots, communication, middleware}, pages = {42--51} }']
