  1. 11. Activity recognition in resource-constrained pervasive systems

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Niklas Karvonen; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Distribuerade datorsystem; Mobile and Pervasive Computing;

    Abstract : There is an increasing need for personalised and context-aware services in our everyday lives and we rely on mobile and wearable devices to provide such services. Data collected from these devices includes important information about users’ movements, locations, physiological status, and environment. READ MORE

  2. 12. From Signal to Social : Steps Towards Pervasive Social Context

    University dissertation from Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Håkan Jonsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-06-15]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; context-awareness; social context; mobile phones;

    Abstract : The widespread adoption of smartphones with advanced sensing, computing and data transfer capabilities has made scientific studies of human social behavior possible at a previously unprecedented scale. It has also allowed context-awareness to become a natural feature in many applications using features such as activity recognition and location information. READ MORE

  3. 13. Context-sharing and mediated communication for smart environments

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Josef Hallberg; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Medical Engineering for Healthcare; Medicinsk teknik för hälsovård;

    Abstract : The deployment of pervasive computing technology and services has enabled the creation of smart environments which assist people in their daily activities. However, the deployment of technology and services into these smart environments has been obstructed due to many factors, most notably from the lack of proper models, rules and services. READ MORE

  4. 14. Distributed Technology-Sustained Pervasive Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Kim J.L. Nevelsteen; Theo Kanter; Rahim Rahmani; Kåre Synnes; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pervasive; games; engine; distributed; virtual; world; internet of things; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : Technology-sustained pervasive games, contrary to technology-supported pervasive games, can be understood as computer games interfacing with the physical world. Pervasive games are known to make use of ‘non-standard input devices’ and with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), pervasive applications can be expected to move beyond games. READ MORE

  5. 15. Promoting Semantic Interoperability of Contextual Metadata for Learner Generated Digital Content

    University dissertation from Linnéuniversitetet

    Author : Martin Svensson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metadata; contextual metadata; user-generated content; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Media Technology; Medieteknik;

    Abstract : Technological advancements in computing have led to a reality where computational devices are more mobile, connected and context aware than ever before. Several of these devices are primarily designed for or support the creation of digital content via built-in or attachable sensors, e.g. mobile phones. READ MORE
