1 INTRODUCTION The objective of the "Ambient Intelligence", which

The objective of the "Ambient Intelligence", which
is supported by the pervasive integration of intelli-
gent devices in the surrounding environment (Weiser
1991, Abowd & Mynatt 2000), together with the
rapid developments in the area of mobile
communications are two major trends which have
advanced the ways services for individuals can be
designed. New application scenarios are supported
by the ongoing miniaturization of electronic circuits,
the increase of computational power and the fact that
wireless broadband networks are becoming both
technically feasible and financially affordable.
The seamless integration of components and tech-
nologies into new concept designs enable mobile and
pervasive computing technologies to develop
innovative applications in many different engineer-
ing domain areas such as the design, construction,
deployment and support of processes (Garlan et al.
2002, Rebolj et al. 2001). The potentials offered can
