Abstract [en]

The specification of communication standards and increased availability of sensors for mobile phones and mobile systems are responsible for a significantly increasing sensor availability in populated environments. These devices are able to measure physical parameters and make this data available via communication in sensor networks. To take advantage of the so called acquiring information for public services, other parties have to be able to receive and interpret it. Locally measured datacould be seen as a means of describing user context. For a generic processing of arbitrary context data, a model for the specification ofenvironments, users, information sources and information semantics has to be defined. Such a model would, in the optimal case, enable global domain crossing context usage and hence a broader foundation for context interpretation and integration.This thesis proposes the CII-(Context Information Integration) model for the persistence and retrieval of context information in mobile, dynamically changing, environments. It discusses the terms context and context modeling under the analysis of former publications in thefield. Further-more an architecture and prototype are presented.Live and historical data are stored and accessed by the same platform and querying processor, but are treated in an optimized fashion.Optimized retrieval for closeness in n-dimensional context-spaces is supported by a dedicated method. The implementation enables self-aware,shareable agents that are able to reason or act based upon the global context,including their own. These agents can be considered as being a part of the wholecontext, being movable and executable for all context-aware applications.By applying open source technology, a gratifying implementation of CII is feasible. The document contains a thorough discussion concerning the software design and further prototype development. The use cases at the end of the document show the flexibility and extendability of the model and its implementation as a context-base for three entirely different applications.
