The HomePort System

Publication: Research - peer-reviewArticle in proceeding

Abstract

Residential gateways for home automation are prerequisites to obtain optimal exploitation of energy resources, and they also have the potential to provide a unified operation of various home devices and appliances. Although a number of protocol standards have been proposed, the number of commercially available systems are still very limited. One reason for this is the diversity of device manufacturing standards, another is the lack of efficient and expressive middleware for defining control algorithms and usage scenarios. In this paper we present the architectural design of a distributed middleware system for residential gateways including a simple composition language. Also, we present the initial experiences obtained from a prototype implementation of the system
