There are more and more vendors, which led to IoT being a heterogeneous collection of different IoT platforms, isolated solutions and several protocols. It has been proposed to use Data Integration to overcome this heterogeneity. In addition, costs are on the raise due to increasing volume of data which increases demands on bandwidth and cloud computing capabilities. Again a solution has already been proposed by reducing the amount of data to forward by processing data at the edge of an IoT-System, e. g. filtering or aggregation. This concept is called Edge Computing. In this article the Semantic Edge Computing Runtime (SECR) is introduced, combining both concepts.more info
