Locating physical devices and accessing their functionality in pervasive environments is strongly restricted by their locality. Since there are more and more devices available, waiting to serve users, a simple way is required to access, connect, and most important to locate them in the real world. In this paper we propose an approach to connect and access arbitrary devices by federating them related to their geographical location. This approach allows us to create context-aware federations of devices ? the internet of things.
