Abstract

Many context-aware applications exploit current world contexts to control information access and service adaptation. To support a user centric utility model for a context-aware system, user goals are supported by the system. However, traditional goal-based approaches such as planning are hard to achieve in a context-aware environment because environments and systems are dynamic. This can lead to inconsistencies and goal conflicts. In this research, a new goal-context based approach is introduced to guide service adaptation for context-aware applications. A reflection model is investigated and applied to the system to resolve ambiguities and inconsistencies between goal-based planning and actual service adaptation. The new system, with its improved flexibility and robustness, is demonstrated in the form of a mobile spatial routing application.
