Smart spaces are physical spaces where services provided by Consumer Electronics (CE) devices with varying resource availabilities work together to realize user-specific automated scenarios. These scenarios may be interrupted in case one of the services making up the scenario stops working, e.g. due to lack of resources, node failure or leave. Therefore,(More)
Pervasive computing environments consist of many independent collaborating electronic devices, including sensors and actuators. Ad-Hoc extendibility of such systems is desirable but the current network technologies use the concept of a central coordinator device in the network or define application profiles which are not easy to extend and maintain. The(More)
We present a power-managed smart lighting system that allows collaboration of Consumer Electronics (CE) lighting-devices and corresponding system architectures provided by different CE suppliers. In the example scenario, the rooms of a building are categorized as lowand highpriority, each category utilizing a different system architecture. The rooms(More)
Nowadays home automation systems integrate many devices from security system, heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, lighting system or audio-video systems. Every time a new device is installed, problems with connecting it to other devices and synchronization may appear. The technology trends are to build more powerful and functional new(More)
Device and service discovery is a very important topic when considering pervasive environments. The discovery mechanism is required to work in networks with dynamic topology and on limited software, and be able to accept different device descriptions. This paper presents a service and device discovery mechanism using JCSP agents and the JCSP network package(More)
