Abstract

Context-aware mobile applications are becoming popular, as a consequence of the technological advances in mobile devices, sensors and wireless networking. Nevertheless, developing a context-aware system involves several challenges. For example, what will be the contextual information, how to represent, acquire and process this information and how it will be used by the system. Some frameworks and middleware have been proposed in the literature to help programmers to overcome these challenges. Most of the proposed solutions, however, neither have an extensible ontology-based context model nor uses a communication method that allows a better use of the potentialities of the models of this kind.
