Context-awareness

In POSEIDON, as part of our drive to support the development of context-aware services for people with Down syndrome, we have made various achievements in the areas of context-awareness including context development and deployment.

  1. As part of the POSEIDON framework, we have proposed methodologies, and modelling notations for the creation of deployable contexts. Proposed methodologies include those that encourage the developer to implement ethical software, and also help in requirements gathering for context-awareness. To assist the developer in context design and creation, we have created open source tools that support a novel modelling notation. Using this tool, developers can more easily create contexts for POSEIDON compatible systems.
  2. We have developed an open source mobile context reasoner, for context processing and reasoning. This reasoner is featured on the Google Play Store, and is extensible by other developers. In addition, the context reasoner supports user personalisation of context rules, allowing the user to tailor context rules for their needs.

These achievements have been disseminated in documents including publically visible deliverables and peer reviewed publications submitted and accepted at international conferences.
