In recent years, the Internet of Things gains more and more attention through cheap hardware devices and, consequently, an increased interconnection of them. These devices equipped with sensors and actuators form the foundation for so called smart environments that enable monitoring as well as self-organization. However, an efficient sensor registration, binding, and sensor data provisioning is still a major issue for the Internet of Things. Usually, these steps can take up to days or even weeks due to a manual configuration and binding by sensor experts that furthermore have to communicate with domain-experts that define the requirements, e.g. the types of sensors, for the smart environments. In previous work, we introduced a first vision of a method for automated sensor registration, binding, and sensor data provisioning. In this paper, we further detail and extend this vision, e.g., by introducing optimization steps to enhance efficiency as well as effectiveness. Furthermore, the approach is evaluated through a prototypical implementation.
