Context-aware services are often viewed as generalizations of location-aware services; thus, many context-aware application systems necessarily inherit the data management Cited by: 9.

building context-aware mobile services is a complex and ctime-consuming task. In this paper, we present a Service-oriented Context-Aware Middleware (SOCAM) architecture for the building and rapid prototyping of context-aware mobile services.

We propose an ontology-based approach to model various contexts. These context-rich logs open a venue for mining the personal preferences of mobile users under varying contexts and thus enabling the development of personalized context-aware recommendation and other related services, such as mobile online : ZhuHengshu, ChenEnhong, XiongHui, YuKuifei, CaoHuanhuan, TianJilei.

The aim of our project is to design and implement a context-aware service recommendation system for mobile users in a smart city. Our system should be able to deliver the most appropriate service to a given user according to her geolocation and surrounding environment at a given.

Context-Aware Service (CAS) CAS allows a mobility services engine to simultaneously track thousands of mobile assets and clients by retrieving contextual information such as location, temperature, and availability from Cisco access points. Context-aware computing is essentially a type of computer operation that anticipates cases of use or, in other words, works in customized ways based on the context of user activities.

This can apply either to a user's activities on the device, or the physical environment in which the device is being used. The user will be put at centre stage and systems will be able to handle intelligent user profiles, proactive service selection, context-aware service provisioning and ubiquitous computing.

Managing, charging for, and controlling these services render traditional business models inadequate and demand new solutions. Context-aware Mobile Computing - a Literature Review 1. October Context-aware Mobile Computing Literature review T.
