Formalisation du concept d’affordance dans l’ontologie Thing Description

Abstract : This paper presents the Thing Description (TD) ontology, an ontology to describe connected devices and cyberphysical systems on the Web. The TD ontology formalizes the concept of ‘affordance’ as the relationship between an HTTP request sent by an agent, the response provided by the server and the effects of the agent/server communication in the physical world. The axioms of the TD ontology, involving terms from the Semantic Sensor Networks and Smart Applications Reference ontologies, are evaluated against the ‘controllability’ of the device or system being described. The paper introduces a logical formalization of this notion inherited from control theory.
