Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) enables a smart observation of the environment, producing a large amount of heterogeneous data. On the one hand, it allows the remote collection of data, either providing a ready field data set compilation or serving as a secondary source of information to better analyse the research context. On the other hand, all the raw data generated by disparate sensors need to be integrated to leverage the power of IoT in scientific experiments. This paper proposes an ontology-based data integration architecture that allows data from different sources, formats, and semantics to be integrated and organised by a mediated ontology that provides knowledge inference. The architecture is thus evaluated as a use case testing in a scientific software ecosystem that supports all stages of the experiment life cycle.
