Different from the sensor network, the devices in the intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) should be able to organize and coordinate spontaneously to accomplish specific tasks. By taking advantage of various intelligent technologies, we proposed an intelligent IoT model based on the Semantic Web. The framework consists of top ontology, entity link layer, semantic label layer, service register center, transaction construction layer, and transaction execution control layer. For the sake of constructing and executing the transactions automatically in the intelligent IoT, entity functions are represented by Semantic Web Services. Additionally, the framework also acts as a manager during the execution of a transaction and makes effective management and control to the entities. We demonstrated the effectiveness and superiority of the proposed model with a case study of the comprehensive rescue service for transportation accidents.
