Nomadic User Interaction/Cooperation within Autonomous Areas
Ubiquitous computing integrates Internet/Intranet small integrated sensors as well as powerful and dynamic devices into the people’s working and domestic areas. An intelligent area contains many devices that provide information about the state of each artifact (e.g., power failure of the refrigerator) without user intervention. Service discovery systems are essential to achieve this sophistication as they allow services and users to discover, configure and communicate with other services and users. However, most of these systems only provide support for interaction between services and software clients. In order to cope with this limitation, the SEDINU system aims at supporting interactions between nomadic users and services provided by areas. As users may move within the organization from an area to another one in order to accomplish their tasks, this system also provides support for user-user interaction and collaboration under specific contexts (role, location and goals).
