Awareness of Entities, Activities and Contexts in Ambient Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Ambient systems are modeled by entities, activities and contexts, where entities exist in contexts and engage in activities. A context supports a dynamic collection of entities by services and offers awareness information about the entities. Activities also exist in contexts and model ongoing collaborations between entities. Activities and local contexts also obtain awareness information from the context about the dynamic collection of entities. Similarly activities, local contexts and entities are offered awareness information about activities and local contexts.
