Abstract

The system which acts according to userís current situation for providing the necessary services in that context is known as a context aware system. These systems as such donít require any explicit user intervention and thus aim at increasing usability and effectiveness by taking environmental context into account. Context is the information which defines an entity. An entity can be a person, a place, or a thing etc. Context is not about an entity but about the surroundings of an entity which provides the base for defining the entity. Such a Context has multiple dimensions like, i.e., time, location, identity, activity, environment, networks, devices, social situations, etc.

The study of literature reveals that context aware system architectures has made use of limited context for providing context aware services to the user which are limited to a particular application domain. But it can be viewed that a architecture can be designed to cross cut multiple applications by viewing a combination of contextual elements there by providing application specific user centric services,† Appropriate services pertaining to user from a set of services provided by application is identified and offered by way of assembling the atomic service patterns by taking the user context in to account.
