Design of Physical and Logical Context Aware Middleware
Boundary of Internet is widely extended. The Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) depended computing mode is evolved to an intelligent adaptive context aware computing. The corresponding middleware should be adaptive, reflective, dynamic reconfigurable and physical/virtual context aware. In this paper, the design of a context-aware middleware is discussed. Some key issues involved, e.g. virtual and meta-sensors, reflective context model, multi-agent mechanism, an extension of Web service-open Web service, etc. are analyzed and studied. An experimental system and its design are introduced.
