Managing Context Information in Mobile Devices
July-September 2003 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 42-51

To make mobile devices truly context-aware, we must develop systematic techniques for applications to use the uncertain information gained from multiple sources. Instead of using raw measurement data, applications can use higher-level context abstractions. This article introduces a framework and an application programming interface for managing context information, especially sensor-based. The framework simplifies the development of context-aware mobile applications and facilitates information reuse and sharing.

Index Terms:
Context framework, context recognition, sensor fusion, classification, context ontology, application programming interface, context awareness, mobile computing
