A Method of Constructing Imprecise Sensor Ontology in Semantic Sensor Network

Fawang Han


In order for the semantic sensor network to support the machine understanding and machine reasoning of the imprecise knowledge, this paper puts forward a new imprecise sensor ontology construction method. This method combines the fuzziness set theory and roughness set theory and introduces them into the sensor ontology construction. At the same time, it adds the inclusion degree for measurement, and finally constructs the imprecise sensor ontology. Besides that, it illustrates the intuitive expression method and encoding method that construct the imprecise sensor ontology.

We have provided the online access of all issues and papers to the indexing agencies (as given on journal web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information. Also: DOI is paid service which provided by a third party. We never mentioned that we go for this for our any journal. However, journal have no objection if author go directly for this paid DOI service.
