The entire world can exploit sensors and networked sensor systems to benefit through different standards. Energy Conservation and home-care Network (ECHONET) standard specifies an open system architecture that enables the integration of a variety of home appliances and sensors from multiple vendors. The IEEE standard for smart transducer interfaces describes a set of open and network-neutral interfaces for connecting sensors and actuators to communication networks and processors. The Sensor Model Language (SensorML) is a product of the sensor web enablement activity, a research initiative in the geospatial community that mostly uses remote sensors and sensor systems. The Device Kit is an OSGi-based technology that lets applications interface with hardware with hardware devices by using Java. The University of Florida is developing a Device Description Language (DDL) to support automatic device integration including sensors and actuators, with intelligent environments.
