Context-Aware Services, Applications, and NETworking


Our Objectives


With rapid expansion of wireless ad hoc networks and their interactions with wired networks together with the use of location-based services, social media, and the deployment of mobile and wearable sensor devices, it is now possible to develop context-aware applications and services such as those in healthcare and transportation. For example, information extracted from data gathered using mobile phones and embedded computers in buses and taxis could be used to understand city dynamics in real-time and therefore take mitigation actions. Data generated from indoor/outdoor sensors could provide more insights about people’s environmental context. Social media like Facebook and Twitter could be used to extract and record information about people’s preferences and relationship. Generally, the variety of these data could be processed to reveal the patterns of individual, group and societal behaviours in order to develop accordingly context-ware services and applications in different areas such as health, city resource management, environment monitoring, and transportation planning and management. However, handling context changes according to current data and events is a difficult task without supporting tools and techniques. The CASANET team is working on collaborative projects aiming at the development of context-aware services and applications that are related to real problems and needs in transportation, healthcare, and energy sectors. Main related research topics addressed are:

- Context-aware Wireless sensor networks
- Big data technologies and predictive analytics
- Complex-event processing techniques and tools
- Embedded and mobile applications and devices
- Location-based services and applications
- Case studies in ITS, healthcare, and energy sectors
