Sensors and sensor networks are fundamental instruments to acquire and communicate contextual information from the physical world. This information enables better understanding of the physical world for humans and supports creation of ambient intelligence for a wide range of applications in different domains such as smart cities, healthcare and intelligent transportation. To facilitate scalable and seamless access and management of the information obtained from large and heterogeneous sensor networks, we introduce the concept of Semantic Sensor Service Networks which brings the research on Semantic Sensor Network one-step further. The concept combines semantic modelling, knowledge management and service-oriented design to support sensor service access, discovery and composition. It defines a framework in which sensor services can collaborate and co-operate to support data integration from different sensor networks and service computing for complex business applications.
