In order to build a true Internet of Things (IOT), we will need to connect every thing to its digital twin in the cloud, to the benefit of ordinary consumers. A parallel example of this vision is the internet, which connects users to web-based content through the Domain Name System (DNS), a hierarchical, distributed database operated by millions of different entities around the world, that maps domain names to their correlating IP address. Today’s IOT is compromised of many disconnected intranets of things, where individual companies or industries can resolve their own items.
However, consumers generally cannot access these digital twins, some of which correspond to items the consumer themselves own. Further, with a growing mix of numbering systems (GS1, ISO, and non-standardized), it can be difficult for a consumer to know which intranet contains the item’s information in the first place. To realize a true and consumer-centric IOT, this session seeks resolver architecture concepts that will enable open item connectivity which: (i) build on today’s reality of many intranets and many numbering systems, (ii) utilize today’s cloud infrastructure and data security protocols, and (iii) enable the consumer to learn more about the items they own while protecting consumer privacy.
