The process of detecting an IoT resource (such as a sensor, service or database). The mechanism used by a node to search for resources among other nodes of the network.
1. The mechanism used by a node to search for resources among other nodes of the network. A user at a node provides a search query containing a set of keywords corresponding to the resource being searched for. A resource discovery protocol is then used to forward the search query to other nodes and search for the resource on those nodes. When a resource is located at a node, a success message is sent to the node that originated the search query. 2. The operation of tracking, accessing, matching, selecting and eventually requesting the right or the most accurately suitable resource for the successful accomplishment of the desired job.
