Introduces architectures and design principles of context-aware pervasive computing Provides architectural blueprints for building context-aware behavior into applicationsReviews the anatomy of context-aware pervasive applicationsDistills general design principles and a generic architecture for context-aware applicationsPresents material readily usable for engineers, researchers, and practitioners Aware systems are among the most exciting trends in computing today, fueled by recent developments in pervasive computing. Context Aware Pervasive Systems: The Architecture of a New Breed of Applications introduces a new breed of computer applications and provides architectural blueprints for building context-aware behavior into applications. It reviews the anatomy of context-aware pervasive applications including mobile services. It discusses the integration of context-aware computing with software agents and the Web. It explores the use of context-awareness for addressing and communications. This text also distills general design principles and a generic architecture for context-aware applications.
