Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more and more popular. Increasingly, European projects (CityPulse, IoT.est, IoT-i and IERC), standard development organizations (ETSI M2M, oneM2M and W3C) and developers are involved in integrating Semantic Web technologies to Internet of Things. All of them design IoT application uses cases which are not necessarily interoperable with each other. The main innovative research challenge is providing a unified system to build interoperable semantic-based IoT applications. In this paper, to overcome this challenge, we design the Semantic Web of Things (SWoT) generator to assist IoT projects and developers in: (1) building interoperable Semantic Web of Things (SWoT) applications by providing interoperable semantic-based IoT application templates, (2) easily inferring high-level abstractions from sensor measurements thanks to the rules provided by the template, (3) designing domain-specific or inter-domain IoT applications thanks to the interoperable domain knowledge provided by the template, and (4) encouraging to reuse as much as possible the background knowledge already designed. We demonstrate the usefulness of our contribution though three use cases: (1) cloud-based IoT developers, (2) mobile application developers, and (3) assisting IoT projects. A proof-of concept for providing Semantic Web of Things application templates is available at http://www.sensormeasurement.appspot.com/?p=m3api.
