Integrating the Physical World with the Web to Enable Context-Enhanced Services

Debaty, Philippe; Goddi, Patrick; Vorbau, Alex


Keyword(s): ubiquitous computing; pervasive computing; Web presence; context-aware; location-aware; smart spaces; Cooltown

Abstract: In Cooltown, we believe that the integration of our physical world with the Web offers unique opportunities to enable ubiquitous computing applications. This paper describes our latest results in building a model and a software architecture called the Web presence manager (WPM) to support this physical-virtual integration. This software layer implements and specifies the services and information provided by Web representations of physical entities such as people, places, or things. We detail an extensive context-enhanced media-oriented application built on top of our platform. Our application enables mobile and context-aware access to personal contents and rendering on local appliances in a variety of ubiquitous computing environments.
