Context-Aware Artifacts: Two Development Approaches
April-June 2006 (vol. 5 no. 2)
pp. 48-53
Seng W. Loke, La Trobe University
Examples of context-aware artifacts include everyday objects, appliances, and handheld devices. In general, developers can choose one of two basic approaches to make an artifact context aware. They can select self-supported context-awareness, which lets an artifact remain self-contained, or they can choose infrastructure-supported context-awareness, which can complement devices with extensive reasoning and sensing capabilities. This article surveys such approaches and their implementations in various devices, also considering associated challenges and future research directions.
Index Terms:
context-aware artifacts, infrastructure, sensors
