    We present a uniform mobile terminal software framework that provides systematic methods for acquiring and processing useful context information from a user's surroundings and giving it to applications. The framework simplifies the development of context-aware mobile applications by managing raw context information gained from multiple sources and enabling higher-level context abstractions.
