Abstract
Device and technology diversity along with application heterogeneity are two of the main factors that have an impact on the way how middlewares build IoT applications in a global and uniform fashion. The presented approach therefore proposes an Object-Oriented distributed middleware to set up an IoT ecosystem related to RFID-based product traceability business model. This paper also discusses the IoT requirements and how the proposed approach, apart from fulfilling them, can benefit all involved parties from developers and users to companies. As an example, goods tracking and recycle industry is used to show how IoT concepts can be evolved from laboratories to high scale industry.
