© Springer International Publishing AG 2018.In an IoT (Internet of Things) environment new forms of interaction between human and computer can occur through devices that combine the object with sensors and actuators. In view of this scenario, one of the purposes of bringing together the areas of HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and IoT design is to understand how this new form of interaction with the participation of sensors and actuators happens, and thus contribute to the development of the design of interaction adequate to the needs of user. The objective of this paper is to establish the application of the concepts Semiotic Engineering (a theory of HCI), which is based on the study of signs and considers every form of interaction as an artifact to communicate a message between the system designer and the user, to contribute to effective and efficient communication, and consequently increase the quality of use of the system. The validation of this application occurred in a positive way, but with some restrictions that reflect the specific characteristics of this type of interaction, such as ubiquity and the distancing from the traditional forms of interaction (mouse, screen, and key-board) between the person and the computer.
