We demonstrate interoperable mobile agents to integrate Internet of Things and wireless sensor networks with resource-constrained low-power embedded networked devices. We introduce adaptable composition for the mobile agent, complying with the Representational State Transfer principles, which are then used for agent migration, controlling the agent and exposing the data, system resources, tasks and services, to the Web. We gather requirements for the system and heterogeneous networked devices and present an application programming interface to enable mobile agents in these systems. The agents are demonstrated in a real-world prototype with smartphones and embedded networked devices, where we utilize a proxy component to expose system resources to the Web for human-machine interactions. Spanning over disparate networks and protocols, the proxy translates messages including the agent composition, between HTTP and Constrained Application Protocol. Lastly, we suggest an evaluation method for the agent communication and migration costs, considering the different types of system resources and utilization.
