Abstract

The paper describes an approach to information and knowledge integration based on usage of such technologies as Web services, radiofrequency identification (RFID), global positioning systems (GPS), etc. To provide for the information integration at the level of semantics, the ontological model is used. The model is based on the knowledge represenation formalism of object-oriented constraint networks. The architecture of the system implementing the proposed approach is based on the idea of self-organising networks whose nodes represent agent-based Web-services. Dynamic logistics has been chosen as the application domain for the approach.
