Abstract: The state-of-the-art on internet of things (IoT), deals with its definition, its architecture, ontology of its components, networking and middleware. IoT contains a large number of devices which are placed around the world. Every device provides an IoT service. As devices joining the IoT are increasing, the services are also rising proportionately. In order to meet the user requirements for the complex application, we need a collection of suitable services, also known as service composition. Identifying the optimal service composition in IoT is a challenging task. This paper presents a hyper-heuristic approach, a latest trend in the field of stochastic optimisation, for the solution of service composition problem in internet of things. The efficacy of the hyper-heuristic approach is tested on 25 test data instances and the results are compared with genetic algorithm, the most widely used global optimisation technique.

Keywords: internet of things; IoT; service composition; hyper-heuristics; genetic algorithm.
