Hi all,

On the flight back home from Sapporo I made an exercise to apply a Thing Description, API primitives and CoAP protocol mapping similar to inputs to this IG to the "Remote Health Monitoring" architecture and use case described in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wot-ig/2015May/att-0021/UC_Remote_health_monitoring_system_-_mapping_to_APIs_and_protocols.pdf.

That exercise led to two comments/questions related to TD proposals that have been submitted to this IG. Please excuse me if these issues already have been discussed in TF-TD.

*        If an IoT device initiates communication with a cloud server the device gets a dynamic IP-address and port that the cloud server application can use to send messages to the device. It must be possible to express this in the TD for the device.

*        For inputData and outputData I have only seen the data type expressed. How should value range be expressed? For actions the name of the inputData/outputData also have to be stated so that it is stated what the data is used for.
