Data from Sunmoon University Advance Knowledge in Context Awareness (Interactive middleware architecture for lifelog based context awareness)

August 5, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Context Awareness is now available. According to news reporting from Asan, South Korea, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Due to the development of IT convergence, a wide variety of information is being produced and distributed rapidly in digital form. Lifelog based context awareness is a technology that provides a service automatically based on perceived situational information in ubiquitous environments."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Sunmoon University, "To offer customized services to users, the technology of acquiring lifelog based context information in real time is the most important consideration. We propose the interactive middleware architecture for lifelog based context awareness in distributed and ubiquitous environments. Conventional middleware to support ubiquitous environments stores and manages the situational information and service content acquired by centralized storage or a DBMS. Centralized situational information and service content management may impede the autonomy of mobile nodes and the interoperation between different middle software. The proposed method designs a system that can distribute and manage situational information in mobile nodes using mobile devices in distributed and ubiquitous environments and share the service content between interactive middleware through publication."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The application system designed in this study was used in a scenario providing situational perception based mobile service and proved to be useful."
