How the OSGi Residential Specifications can help to build an ecosystem for smart home
In 2008 the OSGi Alliance created the Residential Expert Group with the mission to develop new specifications that would allow to build an application ecosystem for the smart home.
In this presentation we want to provide an overview of the second release of OSGi Residential Specification that will be released later this year. It contains specifications for a Device Abstraction Layer, EnOcean Device Service Specification, Resource Monitoring, Serial Communication and more. Requirements for these specifications also come from other SDO's like the Home Gateway Initiative, product developments, and other projects.
With this second release of OSGi Residential Specification, the Residential Expert Group considers its mission fulfilled. For this reason we want provide a recap of the achievements, the relevance to other standardization bodies as well as to the smart home market in general.
