Chessa S., Furfari F., Girolami M., Lenzi S., Potort́ F. A service-oriented zigbee gateway based on the OSGi framework. Technical report, 2011.
The ZigBee standard defines a service-oriented framework for the implementation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In the recent years ZigBee has received the attraction of many research studies focused on the design and the implementation of network gateways able to access and to interact with ZigBee sensors from heterogeneous networks. To address the interoperable challenge, this paper presents ZB4OSGi, an OSGi-based ZigBee gateway able to export the ZigBee network services in the OSGi execution environment without requiring any prior knowledge about the ZigBee protocol. ZB4OSGi exploits a 3-layered architecture enabling the access, abstraction and integration of ZigBee devices to different channels like UPnP or SOAP-REST Web Services. The paper faces with a concrete implementation of ZB4OSGi, by highlighting the features with respect to already existing ZigBee gateways.
