Abstract
The goal of our work is to help users make more
informed choices about what physical activities they
undertake. One example is to provide relevant
information to help someone choose whether to wait at
the closest bus stop, or walk a few minutes to the next
stop, without missing the bus. In this paper, we report
on our development of a platform which collects
relevant context information for five different
scenarios, processes this data, and presents relevant
information to the user at the right time, in an
unobtrusive way. The personal area network we use
consists of a sensor platform with wireless capabilities,
a Bluetooth-enabled wristwatch, and a mobile phone.
We are also able to communicate with the user's PCs
