Abstract

Current context-aware frameworks and applications do not support the need of reusability of code and open interfaces. Information about the environment is often gained by using proprietary hardware; applications cannot simply be reused on other devices with different hardware configuration. Also for the idea of reusing the context one more than one device methods and concepts have to be provided.Hydrogen's Context-Framework provides an approach for an open, extensible framework comprising a 3-layered architecture for context information, a middleware layer and an application layer. Context can be provided for more than the device connected to the sensors.
