Abstract

World Wide Web contains a huge amount of periodically-updated values originally sensed from the physical world; they include, for example, density of air pollutant, road traffic condition, and car park occupancy. In many cases, however, those data are not easily accessible from a computer program due to the lack of APIs to fetch them. In this paper, to cope with this problem, we propose an architecture for discovering, excavating, and streaming the entombed web contents (EWC). This architecture, called Sensorizer, leverages crowd sourcing for accurate EWC discovery, periodic web scraping with a headless browser for excavation from dynamic web pages, and a standardized communication protocol (XMPP) for data streaming to wide variety of applications.
