The development of small wireless sensors and smart-phones, which include various sound, video, motion and location sensors have facilitated new pervasive applications. These pervasive systems are expected to perform in a vast number of environments, ranging from urban to rural, with different capabilities and resources. Application requirements may change dynamically requiring flexible adaptation. Sensing faults appear during their lifetime and as users are not expected to have technical skills, the system needs to be self-managing.
