The objective of this project is to evolve the RF device ontology developed in Phase I, design and implement a run time prototype system, develop a test environment and perform an evaluation of the approach developed in Phase I. Based upon the findings and success of Phase I, we propose to continue the work on the Dev2WALDO ontology, augment it with necessary concepts, design and develop a prototype of DeVISor and carry out evaluation and assessment of the ontology expressiveness in describing capabilities of RF devices. DeVISor will interact with applications that require knowledge of the available RF devices on the one side and RF devices themselves on the other side. DeVISor will be connected to the network via the APIs of the network operating system (e.g., WALDO). DeVISor will answer applications' queries about the availability, capabilities and status of the particular devices.
