This paper presents Tiny-ME (the Tiny Matchmaking Engine), a matchmaking and reasoning engine for the Web Ontology Language (OWL), designed and implemented with a compact and portable C core. Main features are high resource efficiency and multiplatform support, spanning containerized microservices, desktops, mobile devices, and embedded boards. The OWLlink interface has been extended to enable non-standard reasoning services for matchmaking in Web, Cloud, and Edge computing. A prototype evaluation is proposed, including a case study on the Pixhawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) autopilot and performance highlights.
