Abstract

The integration of existing and future smart cyberphysical systems within a fully realized Internet of Things (IoT) cannot dismiss the requirement of interoperability. The absence of standards for the IoT along with its intrinsic complexity demand for proper methodologies in order to fully support the development of heterogeneous, but interoperable, IoT systems as well as their integration. However, at the state-of-the-art, no methodologies for IoT systems integration are available. To fill this gap, in this paper the INTER-METH engineering methodology is presented. Developed in the context of the European H2020 project named INTER-IoT, INTER-METH supports the integration process of heterogeneous IoT platforms from the analysis to the maintenance phase. Its main features as well as its abstract and instantiated process schema are described; in particular, in this paper the focus is on the analysis phase that is fundamental for driving the integration process.
