Presently heterogeneous devices provided with several communications interfaces are everywhere, with this, we are increasingly coming in contact with ”shared” computer-enhanced devices such as cars, portable media players, or home appliances, commonly called ubiquitous computing environments. These environments require special properties that traditional computing does not support, such as a proper resource management which plays an important role in pervasive computing where adaptation and dynamic reconfiguration of resources take place. This work presents a new adaptive resource management approach that supports adaptation for the required resources. We use a component-based model to abstract system’s ubiquitous resources in a transparent and uniform way to the applications.
