Smart cities are becoming more and more popular. Currently, there is no unified and interoperable system which could be reused and redeployed in future smart cities. Having an interoperable: (1) system, (2) architecture, (3) workflow to process IoT data, (4) interoperable applications and services, and (5) secure access to data is becoming essential to reduce development cost in smart cities and ensure interoperability among vertical IoT applications (i.e., domain-specific). Firstly, we survey existing work integrating semantic web technologies to Internet of Things, also called 'Semantic Web of Things' and applying it to smart cities. Secondly, we share in this paper, our vision of Semantic Web of Things applied to smart cities and highlight main research challenges. Finally, the main contribution of this work is the semantic engine applied to IoT and smart cities. Moreover, the proposed semantic engine is applied to three use cases: Machine-to-Machine Measurement (M3) framework, FIESTA-IOT EU project and VITAL EU project.
