Wireless Sensors Networks (WSNs) form the founding block of the Internet of Things (IoT) Sensing Layer. In IoT scenarios, programmers will make the most of IoT if they focus on the development of context-aware applications rather than managing low-level aspects of the network they run on. To this end, providing harmonized data models eases the development of applications. Focusing on crossbow-micaZ sensors, we present an approach to integrate a heterogeneous WSN platform into FIWARE, towards the development of people-centric applications.
