The domain of sensors is still a wild jungle in which nothing is quite standardized. To fix this, we need a device standard to characterize physical and electrical features and constraints, describe necessary data processing and message parsing procedures, and, more importantly, enable automatic device integration into the world of computers we already have. This paper highlights five standards, some of which are labeled "device," "sensor," or "transducer," but all of them are equally capable of describing devices. If sensors are considered as simple or primitive devices, it follows that all five standards are also capable of describing sensors. No distinction between sensors and devices are done here.
