Enhancing Existing Communication Services with Context Awareness
Context aware communication services rely on information sources and sensors, to derive users' current situation and potential needs, and to adapt their communication services accordingly. If extensive studies have been driven on context awareness by industrials and researchers from academia, the design of such systems without modifying uses and manners of underlying communication services - while keeping them simple, intuitive, and reactive - remains a challenge. In this paper, the authors introduce a context aware communication system that takes into account user's preferences, workload, and situation to customize telephony services. In this implementation, they use IMS for communication management.
