The convergence of smart field devices and business services stands to profoundly change the way we interact with our environment. This is especially true in the home context. In this paper, we present an open architecture and a dynamic service-oriented gateway running home services. The gateway is based on the OSGi standard and provides mechanisms to(More)
— The convergence of smart field devices and business services stands to profoundly change the way we interact with our environment. However, implementing and maintaining home-control applications is still far from easy. This paper discusses how service-oriented concepts can facilitate the development of home-control applications. Moreover we present an(More)
— The convergence of smart home appliances and business services stands to profoundly change the way we interact with our environment. However, implementing and maintaining home-control applications is still far from easy. This demonstration presents our service-oriented platform to facilitate the development of home-control applications. This prototype is(More)
This article introduces the design of the AutoHome service-oriented framework to simplify the development and runtime adaptive support of autonomic pervasive applications. To this end, we describe our novel open infrastructure for building and executing home applications. This includes the amalgamation of the two computing areas of autonomics and service(More)
Component-based platforms are widely used to develop and deploy distributed pervasive system that exhibit a high degree of dynam-icity, concurrency, distribution, heterogeneity, and volatility. This paper deals with the problem of ensuring safe yet efficient dynamic adaptation in a distributed and volatile environment. Most current platforms provide(More)
One of the main technical challenges of the pervasive computing is the ability to build applications with the capacity to adapt themselves to their environment. In this paper, we present an open architecture facilitating the development of home services. Context dynamicity and service ambiguity are dynamically managed by smart composing elements. The(More)

Service-oriented pervasive systems, composed of a large number of devices with heterogeneous capabilities where devices' resources are abstracted as software services, challenge the creation of high-quality composite applications. Resource heterogeneity, dynamic network connectivity, and a large number of highly distributed service providers complicate the(More)
The recent proliferation of ever smaller and smarter electronic devices, combined with the introduction of wireless communication and mobile software technologies enables the construction of a large variety of pervasive applications, such as home supervision and alarm systems. The inherent complexity of such applications along with their nonexpert clientele(More)
