ABSTRACT
Pervasive systems are the subject of intensifying research efforts and their applications range from health monitoring and intelligent homes, to location aware services, unmanned vehicles and city-wide pervasive infrastructures. Although application-specific solutions have been proposed, their design has often raised additional challenges. This paper discusses the use of Autonomous Pervasive Systems as a fertile testbed for policy-based adaptation and for integrating techniques that span across conventional subject boundaries. Additionally, we present the Self- Managed Cell architectural pattern for realizing policy-driven Autonomous Pervasive Systems and discuss the design of the Ponder2 policy service.
