Abstract

Adaptability to changing environments and environmental conditions is a key concern for future smart applications. Therefore, for autonomous systems it will be necessary to extend the local view on the environment with external sensors, either fixed or mobile ones. New evolving technologies support the acquisition of a myriad of information, described as “Internet of Things”, “Intelligent Environments”, “Industrial or Building Automation”, “Ambient Intelligence”, or “Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing”, etc. Thus, information is always available, but its interpretation and integration into the own view remains an open problem. We therefore propose the development of a new type of distributed middleware for the environmental perception, that abstracts the environment from the diversity of available sensor systems. In three steps we describe how more and more functionalities can be extracted from the control application to support artificial perception and environment modelling.
