Abstract

The recent advancement of mobile computing technology and smartphones have changed the way we live, communicate, interact, and understand the world. Smartphones have various salient features that make them promising system platforms for the development of context-aware applications, e.g., embedded sensors in smartphones make them more convenient to be used for making context-rich information available to applications. Although the state of the art development of smartphones has endued developers to build advanced context-aware applications, many challenges still remain. Those are mostly due to the limited resources available in the mobile devices including computational and communication resources. This paper surveys the recent advances in context-aware applications in mobile platforms, and proposes a decentralized context-aware computing model that makes use of the smartphone platform, a P2P communication model, and declarative rule-based programming.
