To provide ontology-based context understanding services in the embedded application areas, efficient ontology document management schemes are required. Even though some related systems have been developed, they are not appropriate for the embedded system environment with some limitations on memory, disk space and computing power, such as home networking, telematics and intelligent robotics. In this regard, we have developed the embedded system-oriented OWL semantic document management system using the relational databases. We first design a relational data schema appropriate for the OWL documents and then develop a transformation mechanism to store OWL documents. Additionally, the RDQL semantic query processor is additionally implemented for the experiments.
