English abstract:
Abstract. Context-aware systems in mobile and pervasive environments face
many conflicting situations while collecting sensor data, processing sensor data to
extract consistent and coherent high level context information, and disseminating
that context information to assist in making decisions to adapt to the continuously
evolving situations without diverting human attention. These conflicting
situations pose stern challenges to the design and development of context-aware
systems by making it extremely complicated and error-prone. Quality of Context
parameters can be used to cope with these challenges. In this paper, we discuss
the conflicting situations that a context-aware system may face at different layers
of its conceptual design and present the conflict resolving policies that are defined
on the basis of the Quality of Context parameters. We also illustrate how these
policies can be used in different conflicting situations to improve the performance
and effectiveness of context-aware systems.
