Abstract: front page image
(EN) A method enabling managing sensor devices data by aggregating them in virtual entities: Connected Objects (COs). Third Parties access those exposed data if and only if the Owner of those data grants the corresponding access rights. Since communication is bidirectional, Third Parties can also be granted to manage the device set belonging to those COs for which data access was granted. The method allows managing multiple remote devices, enabling systematic naming and addressing schemes to reach those devices. Eventually, the method enables charging procedures through an Object Charging Data Function entity, which finds out the right Object to be charged for and sends the bill to both Owner and Third parties for the provided services. Charging Objects (CHOs) are those COs exposed for the specific application of charging. A hierarchy is proposed (Organisational, Fundamental, Derived and Temporary CHO) enabling inheritance rules (Reverse and Direct) for access rights and/or charging policy.
