Car signal data is usually hard to access, understand and integrate for non automotive domain experts. In this paper, we use semantic technologies for enriching signal data in the automotive industry and access it through Web of Things interactions. This combination allows the access and integration of car data from the web. We built VSSo, a Vehicle Signal ontology based on SOSA/SSN Observations and Actuations, and generated WoT Actions, Events and Properties, enriched with domain metadata. We mapped VSSo to a Web of Things ontology and we developed a Web of Things protocol binding with LwM2M, and made an implementation in a real car. This implementation resulted in a first working prototype, and a number of future improvements required in order to be compliant with automotive standards.
