This paper describes a platform for the user-centred design and evaluation of adaptive, context-aware services in the wireless, mobile and pervasive computing markets. It focuses on evaluating the user interactions with context-aware adaptive systems while synchronising the control of the environmental context that drives adaptivity and the user’s(More)
The promise of smart buildings (SBs) is a safer more productive environment for users and a more operationally efficient building for owners. The automation of building function is highly dependent on sensing devices and Smart Building Applications(SBAs), which are often only evaluated in situ post deployment, making re-development costly. In this paper we(More)
In modern Smart Buildings, systems monitor and regulate energy consumption, lighting levels, humidity and other environmental factors. However, with the number of data sources increasing, the resulting information glut can reduce decision making efficiency for facility management. A promising technique to mitigate this problem is the use of an integration(More)
This paper describes the SimCon (Simulated Context) Generator which combines data on the state of a Virtual Reality building with the SimCon Model to generate interactive location context for the rapid evaluation of Smart Building Applications. The paper evaluates the simulated context against physical readings. The SimCon Model does not set out to replace(More)
The concept of "location" provides one a useful dimension to explore, align, combine, and analyze data. Though one can rely on bespoke GIS systems to conduct their data analyses, we aim to investigate the feasibility of using Semantic Web technologies to leverage the exploration and enrichment of data in CSV files with the vast amount of geographic and(More)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a key enabler to support integration of building data and is an important aspect to support a wide range of use cases, related to building navigation, control, sustainability, etc. Open BIM faces several challenges related to standardization, data interdependency, data access, and security. This means that there is(More)
Mobile devices are changing users' technological habits since the possibilities to be connected to Internet everywhere are increasing as technology is surrounding all aspects of users' life. A user with a mobile device can find that its standard functionality can be extended with those applications and services provided by the environment. Moreover, the(More)
