The aim of this tutorial is to present the Web of Things (WoT), its components, and how they interconnect through a series of semantic approaches into an operable stack of technologies. The goal is (1) to explain WoT and related concepts, (2) to give an overview and explain the functionality of the components of the WoT, (3) explain how these components (sensor networks, semantic web, data analytics) can be used to connect the “things” various levels of abstraction and (4) show relevant projects and demos.
