Hi Automotive WG/BG guys,

Today there was a call of the WoT IG on OCF's IoTivity as follows,
and during that call there was some discussion about a possible
demonstration for automotive use cases during TPAC 2016 in Lisbon.

And I got an action item from the meting to ask the Automotive WG/BG
about our interest in this demonstration opportunity.

I think it would be a great opportunity for us as well to join the WoT
IG's PlugFest demonstration which will be collaborative run with IRTF
and OCF this time (if possible).

What do you think?

Maybe we can talk about this during the next WG/BG call.

We had a call today with Markus Jung (Siemens), who is based in Seoul,
Korea, to discuss opportunities for creating a demo that integrates
iotivity with the web of things.  Iotivity [1] is an open source
implementation of the OCF specifications [2].  We agreed that a reasonable
target for the demo would be TPAC 2016 on 19-23 September in Lisbon.

The primary aim would be to show how an application on another platform can
use thing description as the basis for interacting with sensors/actuators
on a device running iotivity. A secondary aim would be to show how the
discovery API proposed by Louay could be used on top of the discovery
mechanisms implemented by iotivity.

Iotivity is available as a plugin for the eclipse IDE on Linux with ports
under development for Windows and iOS. This provides an emulator for
devices conforming to the OCF specifications. Iotivity is also available
for embedded systems running Linux, but is not suitable for
microcontrollers with just kilobytes of RAM.

Iotivity supports CoAP including the multicast discovery mechanisms defined
for CoAP. There is also an API for registering with an external repository.
In our discussions, we agreed that run-time access to metamodels such as
the WoT IG thing descriptions would be a useful complement to the OCF work.
Markus further agreed that data integrity constraints would be interesting
to look at. Matthias noted that OCF could normatively reference a W3C
Recommendation for Thing Descriptions if the proposed WoT WG can drive this
along the Recommendation track in a timely manner.

Kevin Gavigan (JLR) attended the call on behalf of the W3C Automotive WG to
learn about iotivity.  It looks like the Auto WG could provide valuable use
cases and requirements for the WoT IG work on thing descriptions. Moreover,
it would be interesting to consider automotive demos for the Web of Things.
Kaz took an action to initiate a dialog on this between the Automotive
groups and the Wot IG.

For the iotivity demo, we decided to work on a document that sets out the
aims and plans for the demo, and to have a first version of this ready by
the end of June. One use of this document is to get management support for
the demo, e.g. for Samsung to agree to Markus investing some time and
travel to Lisbon for TPAC. We would then plan to have a follow on call
either at the end of June or soon after the WoT IG’s Beijing meeting.
Matthias took an action to create a markdown document in the WoT IG’s
github repository and to do some initial work on it, with the help of
Markus and others.  We didn’t decide on the use case for the demo, and this
is something that could be clarified as we discuss ideas for what we want
to emphasise for the Lisbon PlugFest.

The meeting participants were: Markus, Carsten, Kaz, Kevin, Matthias, Dave,
and Soumya. My thanks to Kaz for taking the minutes, see:
