Location awareness is the key capability of mobile computing applications. Despite high demand, indoor location technologies have not become truly ubiquitous mainly due to their requirements of costly infrastructure and dedicated hardware components. Received signal strength (RSS) based location systems are poised to realize economical ubiquity as well as(More)
Location based services are becoming essential feature of context-awareness in ubiquitous computing. Reflective distribute component programming model is proposed to systematically provide location to Location Based Services (LBS). We integrate distributed component technology and reflection to develop localization capability as middleware service. Concept(More)
The technology of multimedia content adaptation based upon the location of a target device can become the long expected killer application of ubiquitous computing. Easy to develop, lightweight, and robust location estimation is the core component of this technology. Until now, location estimation technology remains restricted to highly sophisticated(More)
Today mobile computing is pervasively taking over the traditional desktop computing. Mobile devices are characterized by abrupt and un-announced changes in execution context. The applications running on these devices need to be autonomous and thus dynamically adapt according to the changing context. Existing middleware support for the typical distributed(More)
CERN's (European Organization for Nuclear Research) WISDOM project uses XML for the replication of data between different data repositories in a heterogeneous operating system environment. For exchanging data from Web-resident databases, the data needs to be transformed into XML and back to the database format. Many different approaches are employed to do(More)
Location Awareness is key capability of Context-Aware Ubiquitous environments. Received Signal Strength (RSS) based localization is increasingly popular choice especially for in-building scenarios after pervasive adoption of IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN. Fundamental requirement of such localization systems is to estimate location from RSS at a particular(More)
— Received Signal Strength (RSS) based location systems are potential candidates to enable indoor location aware services due to pervasively available wireless local area networks and hand held devices. Intrinsically RSS based positioning is a multi-class pattern recognition problem. Previous researches have shown that Visibility Matrix based approach of(More)
