           Integrating Objects to Create New
           Networked Services

           are now embedded with sensors or actuators and have the
           ability to communicate over the Internet. Collectively they make
           up the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT draws together various
           technologies including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID),
           Machine-to-Machine (M2M) service platforms and Wireless                                      Online

         oneM2M draws together the many diverse IoT-related
         business domains including telematics and intelligent
         transportation, healthcare, utilities, industrial automation
         and smart homes. The initiative is developing specifications
         that will enable users to build platforms by which devices
         and services can be connected, regardless of the underlying                                   Online

         complexity for the application developer and lower costs for
         service providers.

         Each oneM2M partner standards body publishes oneM2M
         specifications as its own local specifications, thereby ensuring
         there is one global set of specifications, recognised in each
