In the Internet of Things, billions of networked and software-driven devices will be connected to the Internet. They can communicate and cooperate with each other to form a composite system. In this paper, we propose PMG-pro (present, model, generate and provide), a language independent, bottom-up and model-driven method for the development of such composite system. We envision that all devices in the Internet of Things provide their functionalities as services. From a service description, a service presenter generates source code (i.e., for the service invocations) and uses an abstract graphical representation to represent a service. The code is connected to the abstract graphical service representation. A service abstractor constructs the abstract graphical representations even more abstract in hierarchical service taxonomy. Software developers use the abstract graphical service presentations to specify new service-based applications, while the source code is used for the automation of code generation.
