Abstract

The applications of pervasive computing in smart home constitute a hot research topic. It is time for the concept of the connected home to become a reality. In this paper, we present a pervasive computing application platform, MacroOS. MacroOS is built on the ensemble of multiple technologies and some novel pervasive computing technologies. It consists of micro embedded operating system which supports wireless network sensors, pervasive network which supports various communication protocol and context middleware which meets the requirement of context awareness and context management. Furthermore, based on the MacroOS platform, we implement successful demonstration applications in smart home system.
