Abstract

In this demonstration, we will show MobiCon, a context monitoring platform; it runs over smartphones and sensor OSs, and facilitates development and deployment of everyday context-aware applications. For many years, lots of research efforts have been made in building low-cost, yet effective sensor networks for various application domains such as structural health monitoring of bridges, disaster recovery, automated ventilation of buildings. Integration of sensors into smartphones and the advent of wearable devices open a new opportunity for mobile applications to leverage in-situ user contexts such as his/her location, activity, social relationship, health status. In recent studies of mobile and pervasive computing, a number of useful mobile context-aware applications have been proposed, but their actual deployment is slow due to complexity of context processing and heavy resource and battery usage. To address such challenges, we have been building MobiCon for many years, upon which diverse context-aware applications are developed and deployed without concerns about complexity of context processing and resource optimization.
