ETSI IoT Semantics Tutorial: From Ontology Engineering to full IoT Solution,
was delivered to a worldwide audience on April 26, as part of ETSI IoT Week 2021

An introduction to IoT semantics

Addressing all those interested in semantics interoperability applied to IoT, this tutorial provides an overview of semantics, applied to IoT and how using ontology can considerably enrich IoT applications and use cases.

The tutorial has been split in sequences starting with an overview of the ontology engineering and the main concepts and languages used in the semantics domain.

A special focus on the SAREF ontology family standardized by ETSI has then been presented.

Finally, the tutorial addresses how semantics in oneM2M standardized solution can bring added value to IoT deployments and a simple use case was demoed.

This tutorial was developed by ETSI / oneM2M in the context of the InDiCo project and delivered for the first time on April 26, 2021 as pre-event to the ETSI IoT Week 2021.
