Challenges

With the advent of powerful Internet-connected objects such as smart phones, personal digital assistants and tablet computers, an ever increasing number of European citizens have constant access to the wealth of information stored on the millions of servers connected via the Internet. At the present time, the availability of such connected objects is causing a drastic paradigm shift in the way people deal with information. Instead of collecting – and printing – potentially relevant information in advance using a personal computer that is only available at particular locations, they now access more and more information on-demand and on-the-go.

The main objective of GAMBAS is to develop an innovative and adaptive data acquisition and processing middleware to enable the privacy-preserving and automated use of behavior-driven services that are able to adapt autonomously to the context of their users. Read more ...



 
The Objectives

Progress

Although it has not been realized so far, overall, the vision of ubiquitous computing as defined by Mark Weiser is not new. Ever since its formulation in 1991, researchers and practitioners have focused on closing different research gaps. These gaps include the development of communication middleware systems to enable the seamless and trustworthy cooperation of a heterogeneous set of possibly resource-poor connected objects as done in the 3PC, GAIA and AURA projects or the PECES FP7 project, for example.
