In Europe, the manufacturing sector represents nearly the 22% of the GDP. Since the beginning of the European Technology Platform MANUFUTURE, Service Oriented Architecture have become the de facto in the industrial informatics research community. In most cases, SOA is implemented by using Web Service technology based on RESTful services or WS-* standards. Several publications have shown the advantages of WS technologies in Factory Automation e.g. enterprise integration, monitoring and control, real-time decision taking, maintenance scheduling, and reconfiguration. Monitoring has become an effortless task, leading to massive data to be processed in order to present a diagnostic i.e. asset-awareness. Further, once problems are identified, an automatic self-recovery mechanism should be provided in order to minimize loses. This paper introduce the eSONIA project which aims to improve the flow of information, rather than raw data, in the factory floor by enhancing the system awareness and granting self-recovery to the factory. To achieve this goal, eSONIA uses pervasive heterogeneous embedded devices intercommunicated with WS technologies over IPv6.
