The Web of Things is about extending the Internet of Things [Ashton, 2009] concept beyond the connection of things and considering issues like heterogeneity, scalability and usability with respect to progressive computing [Mayer et al., 2013]. By introducing web technologies, the concept overpasses Machineto-Machine (M2M) communication and incorporates interaction with users into the landscape. This paper presents a technical overview of our preliminary work developing a low-cost and reliable indoor localization system using state-of-the-art Web of Things technologies targeted to support the daily activities of users with mild cognitive impairments and their carers. This work extends previous experiences of the authors using technologies like RFID [Gappa et al., 2012].
