1 Getting aligned with FIESTA-IoT’s semantic data model

When it comes to put your testbed into the FIESTA-IoT federation, it is deemed necessary to get aligned to the data model (i.e. ontology) we have defined under the umbrella of the whole project. Otherwise, you will not be able to put your data into our repositories, since it will not pass the validation stage (nor the testbed registration module beforehand). As a direct consequence, as a testbed administrator, you will have to undertake the role of adapting your datasets into the semantically annotated formats that have been shaped up in our project.

Before going any further, we strongly recommend that you read through the ontology’s webpage the related deliverables (FIESTA-IoT D3.1, 2016) and (Project Deliverable D3.2) and the paper (Unified IoT Ontology to Enable Interoperability and Federation of Testbeds, 2016).

Moreover, we include the FIESTA-IoT ontology graph that depicts the ontologyy:
