Abstract
Although context-awareness is a key component for
perceptual user interfaces, we lack generic infrastructures
for developing context-aware applications. We propose a
generic infrastructure based on context servers that store,
share and archive contextual data. We describe a few
applications we have built that take advantage of context
sharing and context history and then turn to the overall
design of our context server.
1.Introduction
Context-awareness is recognized as an important feature
for ubiquitous and wearable computing. Context sensing
and interpretation techniques are maturing and applications
demonstrate the value of using context. However, bridging
