Towards a Better Understanding of Context and Context-Awareness
TLDR
Some of the research challenges in understanding context and in developing context-aware applications are discussed, which are increasingly important in the fields of handheld and ubiquitous computing, where the user?s context is changing rapidly. Expand
A Conceptual Framework and a Toolkit for Supporting the Rapid Prototyping of Context-Aware Applications
TLDR
A conceptual framework is presented that separates the acquisition and representation of context from the delivery and reaction to context by a context-aware application, and a toolkit is built that instantiates this conceptual framework and supports the rapid development of a rich space of context- aware applications. Expand
Providing architectural support for building context-aware applications
TLDR
This dissertation shows how the Context Toolkit has been used as a research testbed, supporting the investigation of difficult problems in context-aware computing such as the building of high-level programming abstractions, dealing with ambiguous or inaccurate context data and controlling access to personal context. Expand
Charting past, present, and future research in ubiquitous computing
TLDR
Everyday computing is proposed, a new area of applications research, focussed on scaling interaction with respect to time, just as pushing the availiability of computing away from the traditional desktop fundamentally changes the relationship between humans and computers. Expand
Cyberguide: A mobile context‐aware tour guide
TLDR
The Cyberguide project is presented, in which the authors are building prototypes of a mobile context‐aware tour guide that is used to provide more of the kind of services that they come to expect from a real tour guide. Expand
The context toolkit: aiding the development of context-enabled applications
TLDR
This work introduces the concept of context widgets that mediate betweent the environment and the application in the same way graphicalwidgets mediate between the user and the applications. Expand
The Aware Home: A Living Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing Research
TLDR
The Aware Home project is introduced and some of the technology-and human-centered research objectives in creating the Aware Home are outlined, to create a living laboratory for research in ubiquitous computing for everyday activities. Expand
The smart floor: a mechanism for natural user identification and tracking
TLDR
A system for identifying people based on their footstep force profiles and its accuracy against a large pool of footstep data is tested and it is shown that the effect of footwear is negligible on recognition accuracy. Expand
SAAM: a method for analyzing the properties of software architectures
TLDR
A five-step method for analyzing software architectures called SAAM (Software Architecture Analysis Method) is proposed and illustrated by analyzing three separate user interface architectures with respect to the quality of modifiability. Expand
