Wireless embedded modules have increasingly been implemented on a range of devices, becoming a standard inclusion in mobile technology, entertainment systems and gaming consoles. It will not be far off before they are introduced to household appliances and industrial devices. However, the key challenge is that each manufacturer implements a proprietary set of protocols and standards, and in addition, a set of management applications, which add an unnecessary overhead of compatibility issues and protocol inconsistencies. The aim of the project is to propose an Intelligent Object Framework (IOF), a new communication standard over a wireless network without the existing complexity of a multiple set of architectural solutions. The Intelligent Object Framework consists of a framework design that enables devices of different platforms to communicate by a common data exchange model via a device management controller. In this paper, a prototype of the Intelligent Object Framework is implemented based on Microsoft .NET framework. A substantial amount of research work is carried out to create IOF Management Studio, Intelligent Objects devices, system integration and testing. It demonstrates that a single application can manage multiple Intelligent Object devices efficiently under the proposed Intelligent Object Framework.
