Ubiquitous computing refers to building a global computing environment where seamless and invisible access to computing resources is provided to the user. Pervasive computing deals with acquiring context knowledge from the environment and providing dynamic, proactive and context-aware services to the user. A Ubiquitous computing environment is created by sharing knowledge and information between pervasive computing environments. In this paper, the authors propose a framework that uses the potential of the Semantic Web to weave pervasive computing environments into a Ubiquitous-computing environment.
