The Internet of Things (IoT) platforms support rapid development of applications focused on gaining enhanced awareness and control of the physical environment. In contrast to the traditional, vertically integrated model, IoT platforms aim at supporting a much broader set of applications on top of a shared hardware base of diverse sensing and actuation devices. In this work we survey several IoT solutions and extract their features along different design dimensions. We address several limitations in these existing platforms. Finally, we present our recent work on a novel IoT platform that deals with these shortcomings, developed in the context of the Social Sensor Cloud project.
