Abstract

The trend 'Internet of Things' (IoT) equips Objects with a Internet connection in order to let people benefit from this interconnectivity. We propose a concept which is not only about the interconnectivity of Objects but mainly how we could easily enhance our usage of Objects through data. The investment into omnipresent Internet-capable devices is not reasonable in every scenario. Our goal is to close this gap by assigning Objects to a unique key alongside which data is stored in a highly-scalable and available cloud service. By accessing this stream of data, which could be any type of data like photo, video or text, we can directly describe its past status to others. Also agreements in textual form can be made on Objects between users giving the ability to log interactions. The service is planned to be realized as App for mobile devices as well as website. With our service we aim to let users easily collect data about a Object and thus creating a digital representation within a high-speed cloud network, which is accessible by a user account. We believe that our system has massive potential to ease up previously time-consuming processes when information about Objects are gathered. Our system makes it possible to let end-users participate in the creation of a IoT based on collecting and assigning data, enhancing every ones ability to reason and interact with Objects.
