Abstract

Smartness of applications is heavily based on their ability to use context information for behaving a way that perfectly matches to the situation where the application is used and running. However, achieving a situation based behavior is not straightforward; the situation is to be identified; the functionality that pro-vides the best fit (not always the optimal one) is to be selected from a set of options; and the smart envi-ronment is to be configured so that the primary goal can be achieved. This paper introduces an advanced solution for context monitoring and context sharing among software agents; a graphical user interface for defining the scope of context for the application(s) in hand; the matchmaking of ontologies for defining the reasoning rules to be used; and a rule graph as a means of configuring application’s behavior in a way that it is aligned with the goal of the smart environment. The concept has been implemented as part of the maintenance process of a smart building. It is still a challenge to reach context that can dynamically up-date and, above all, expand itself.
