Reasoning on Smart Products in Consumer Good Domains

Wolfgang Maass, Andreas Filler & Sabine Janzen

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Ambient intelligence technologies rapidly change product capabilities but also the way how users interact with physical products. This product-centered stance requires an instance-centered Product Life Cycle (iPLC) view which perceives products as autonomous actors performing in physical situations which leads to the concept of smart products. Smart products adapt to situations on the basis of internal representations. We present a generic extensible data model, called Smart Product Description Objects (SPDO), whose semantics are described by formal and machine-readable ontologies. SPDO instantiations are computational counterparts of physical product instances. We exemplify the use of SPDO by inferring similarity sets of products within a fashion domain
