Metrics for Evaluating Pervasive Middleware
Pervasive computing aims at developing smart environments which enable user to interact with other devices. Pervasive computing includes a middleware to support interoperability, heterogeneity and self-management among different platforms. It provides efficient communications and context awareness among devices. Middleware for pervasive computing provides much more attention to coordinate the devices in the smart environment. The evaluation of the pervasive middleware is a challenging endeavor. The scope of evaluating smart environment is mainly increasing due to various devices involved in that environment.
