Abstract

The increase of mobile and interconnected devices leads to the growth of demands for context aware applications. These applications deployed on top of pervasive environments must adapt themselves to context changes. Context aware applications have to continuously sense their physical environment, and adapt their behavior accordingly. These applications must perform four phases starting by collecting and monitoring context, then analyzing context, deciding adaptation actions and finally executing the planned adaptation actions to deal with the context changes. In this paper, we focus on the second phase.We propose a context analysis approach that relies on different thresholds defined according to the user needs to detect context changes and raise notifications when changes occur. The analysis approach is performed according to three different steps. A context storage step, a context classification step, and a threshold calculation step.
