Auto-adapting homes to context: a semantic-based evolution of KNX standard protocol

Home and building automation aims at improving features and capabilities of household systems and appliances. Nevertheless, current solutions lack in context-awareness.

The integration of knowledge representation features and reasoning techniques (originally devised for the Semantic Web) into standard home automation protocols can offer high-level services to users.

A semantic-based approach is proposed, able to interface users and devices (whose characteristics are expressed by means of annotated profiles) within an advanced home infrastructure.
