In the Internet of Things (IoT) a large number of devices enable data communication and interaction between physical objects and the cyber world. An important feature of IoT is the possibility of having mobile objects equipped with sensing devices. In service-enabled IoT platforms, where data and interacting are provisioned as services, access and utilisation of these services are affected by the mobility of the resources that provide the data and services. In a reliable and dependable environment, service continuity is supported in scenarios where the IoT resources are mobile or can become unavailable due to handover delays, network disconnection or power outage. In this paper, we propose a resource mobility scheme with two operating modes - caching and tunnelling. We use these methods to enable applications to access the sensory data when the resources become temporarily unavailable. We have implemented a prototype for the proposed scheme in a mobile scenario. The evaluation results show a reduction of service loss in mobility scenarios by 30%. © 2012 IEEE.
