Abstract [en]

As sensing technology develops, it plays an important role in context-aware systems. Using context information improves the user experience of ubiquitous computing. One use of sensed information is to detect a meeting in progress in an office or a conference room. In our system, sensors gather context information from an office environment and act as a presence user agent to update a presence server with context changes. These context changes can be utilized by context-aware services. The presence messaging uses the SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions (SIMPLE) protocol and the presence information is described in eXtensible Makeup Language (XML) format.

In this thesis we present a context-sensing component that recognizes meetings in a typical office environment. A context-aware system is able to use this occupancy information to infer that the room is empty, an individual is alone in the room, or a meeting is taking place in the meeting room. Context-aware services might utilize this environmental information to automatically forward a user's incoming calls to their voice mail server. This and other example applications were developed to show the usefulness of this context information.

Abstract [en]

Så som sensor tekniken utvecklas, spelar de en viktig roll i kontextmedvetna system. Genom att använda kontextuell information förbättras användarupplevelsen av 'ubiquitous computing'. Ett användningsområde för sensorinsamlad information är att upptäcka ett möte som pågår i ett kontor eller konferenslokal. I vårt system samlar sensorer information från en kontorsmiljö och uppdaterar en närvaroserver med kontextuella förändringar. Dessa förändringar kan sedan utnyttjas av kontextmedvetna tjänster. För att förmedla den närvarostatusen använder närvaroservern SIP och ’Presence Leveraging Extensions’ (SIMPLE) protokoll. Närvaro information levereras i 'eXtensible Makeup Language' (XML) format.

I denna avhandling presenterar vi en kontextsensorkomponent som känner av möten i en typisk kontorsmiljö. Ett kontextmedvetet system kan använda denna komponent för att dra slutsatsen att lokalen är tom, en person är ensam i lokalen, eller ett möte äger rum i lokalen. Kontextmedvetna tjänster kan utnyttja denna information för att automatiskt vidarebefordra en användares inkommande samtal till deras röstbrevlåda. Detta och andra exempel, har utvecklats för att visa nyttan av denna kontextuella information.
