MiddleWhere: A Middleware for Location Awareness in Ubiquitous Computing Applications

Location awareness significantly enhances the functionality of ubiquitous computing services and applications, and enriches the way they interact with users and resources in the environment. Many different alternative or complementary location sensing technologies are available. However, these technologies give location information in different formats and with different resolution and confidence. This paper introduces "MiddleWhere" a distributed middleware infrastructure for location that separates applications from location detection technologies.
