Advances in the middleware paradigm has enabled applications to be integrated together thus enabling more reliable distributed systems. Although every middleware tries to solve interoperability issues among a given set of applications, nonetheless there still remains interoperability challenges across various middlewares. Interoperability enables diverse systems to work in accordance and extend the scope of services that are provided by individual systems. During an interoperability process, it is imperative to interpret the information exchanged in a correct and accurate manner in order to maintain coherence of data. Hence, the aim of this paper is to tackle this issue of semantic interoperability through an experimental approach using the domain of vehicular ad-hoc networked systems.
