The authors present a new mobile context monitoring platform to support emerging pervasive applications in a Personal Area Network (PAN)-scale dynamic mobile computing environment. Composed of a mobile device and many wearable and space-embedded sensors, the PAN-scale computing environment will constitute an important part of future pervasive spaces technology. The monitoring platform presented in this paper supports a number of context-aware applications to simultaneously run and share highly scarce and dynamic resources. Their new system develops a novel translation-based approach for efficient and effective monitoring architecture for the environment.
