Enabling the ambient intelligence vision means that consumers will be provided with universal and immediate access to available content and services, together with ways of effectively exploiting them. Concentrating on the software system development aspect, this means that the actual implementation of any ambient intelligence application requested by a user(More)
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) offer a convenient basis toward realization of pervasive computing, due to its ease of deployment and inherent support for anytime, anywhere network access for mobile users. However, the development of applications over such networks is faced by the challenge of network dynamics attributed to node mobility and the scalability(More)
Group Key Agreement (GKA) protocols enable the participants to derive a key based on each one’s contribution over a public network without any central authority. They also provide efficient ways to change the key when the participants change. While some of the proposed GKA protocols are too resource consuming for the constraint devices often present in ad(More)
TheAmigo Interoperability Framework providesmiddlewarelayermechanisms that enable integratingheterogeneous networked devices and services. It includes a service discovery and interaction interoperability architecture and a domotic architecture, which have been tested in combination in a proof-of-concept prototype.
An ad hoc network is a collection of autonomous nodes that communicate with each other by forming a multi-top wireless network. Different from conventional wireless networks, the resource of the nodes in ad hoc networks is limited. As such, the costs of the nodes resource should be minimized when constructing a group key agreement protocol in the ad hoc(More)
While available technologies provide us with base enablers of the ambient intelligence vision, there is still a long way to go before offering robust ambient intelligence systems to consumers, which requires advances in most areas relating to computer science. Our contribution in the area focuses on development support for ambient intelligence software(More)
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) offer a convenient basis towards pervasive computing, due to inherent support for anytime, anywhere network access for mobile users. However, the development of applications over MANET still raises numerous challenges. One such challenge relates to accommodating the high dynamics of the network’s topology. Group management(More)

To deal with emerging network technologies and services, as well as with varying application requirements and dynamic environmental conditions, middleware has to be reconngurable. This requirement highly aaects the middleware communication architecture , which comprises inherent middleware communication mechanisms and the underlying network architecture. In(More)
