Towards an Adaptive and Context Aware Laptop

Loughran, Steve


Keyword(s): laptop computing; power management; context awareness; ubiquitous computing

Abstract: This paper describes a prototype application for notebook computers which infers its current context and adapts some aspects of the system -including the power policy and web proxy settings- to that context. In this manner the computer adapts to the different use situations it encounters. The prototype is limited in that it does not learn to predict user contexts, and, in the absence of good network identification technologies, context detection is fragile. We propose some improvements in the detection of context and mechanisms to support dynamic system adaptation.
