In instrumented environments physical objects augmented with functionality and digital services play an important role. In this tutorial I plan to give an overview on existing infrastructures, that support the design and operation of such environments. We will discuss how object memories can be represented and how events related to those objects can be routed and handled. In particular, we will discuss an infrastructure that has been used for more than 5 years in the Innovative Retail Laboratory a joined research lab of a large German retailer (Globus) and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence. Here every item in the supermarket is considered to be augmented with information in a semantic product memory. The tutorial aims at researchers that plan to experiment and build complex intelligent environments and discusses the tools needed for those.
