Location Models from the Perspective of Context-Aware Applications and Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Abstract:

Location models are crucial for providing location-dependent data to context-aware applications. In this paper, we present two approaches for modeling location information taken from an infrastructure-based and an ad hoc network-based application scenario. From these approaches we derive requirements for a general location modeling language for ubiquitous computing.
