Modeling Context-Aware Behavior by Interpreted ECA Rules
Wolfgang Beer, Christian Volker, Alois Ferscha
The software architecture of distributed systems is about to change due to new requirements of modern mobile devices. New network techniques, like ad-hoc radio communication or peer-to-peer networks allow mobile devices to sense their environment and to interact with other devices dynamically. This paper presents a cutting-edge way to describe objects and their interaction, also called context, as well as the possibility to configure such interaction scenarios. A lookup mechanism collects information about the environment and a rolebased classification is responsible for identifying possible interaction partners. Furthermore the configuration of scenario behavior with context rules is introduced. Finally a comparison with already existing context frameworks is given and a practical emergency scenario configuration is shown.
