User Context in Mobile Applications M.RIFAD
Introduction What is user context ?
Introduction Identifying user location, find people around the user, the time of the day, season, orientation, speed, emotions these all can be included to define a context. Apply the relevant context detail and try to find the best match, determine what is the user is doing at at that time.
Computing context network connectivity communication cost, communication bandwidth nearby resource User context user profile, location, social situation Physical context lighting, noise, traffic condition, temperature Time context Time of a day, week, month and season of the year
Context aware computing A system is context-aware if it uses context to provide relevant information and/or services to the user, where relevancy depends on the user’s task. Time , location, user social status. Context is always dynamic hard to predict.
Important of the context context based application gather information from a certain user and adopts the application according to the user behaviors . Introduction of PDA and smart phones. providing highly enhance user based application to the user is totally depend on the user context.
Important of the context For instance if user is in a meeting or in a class room application identify the user context and make the phone to silent mode or replying the phone calls with the automated text message without the users interaction.
Context based applications A simple call forwarding system.
Context based applications A simple call forwarding system. Uses location context Activity context
Context based applications Shopping assistant system.
Context based applications Shopping assistant system. Location context Identity context.
Location based tourist guide application. App download applications.
Identifying the context. Sensing Location Global Positioning System (GPS) GPS-less Low Cost Outdoor Localization For Very Small Devices. Mobile-IP protocol. Mobile cells, wireless devices . Issues. no uniform way to track locations with fine granularity that works both indoors and outdoors.
Identifying the context. External Sensors and internal sensors. User social activities. User past data.
Methodology Extract the user context . Process the user context. Logic based. Object model. Use the processed context to make decisions.
