Context-Sensitive and Adaptive Services

Contact: Andreas RiegerFrank TrollmannStephan SpiegelDaniel FreundMaximilian Kern


Adaptive and context-aware applications adapt to the current situation of the user. They utilize information retrieved from sensors installed within the environment of the user. With the help of adaptive services and user interfaces and the impact of actors a new kind of services and systems is evolving, which is adjusting to the situation of the user and support her intuitively and personalized.

The main challenge of the research field lies in the recognition and filtering of relevant information based on raw sensor data, as well as in the preparation and processing into high-level information and situations.

Additionally, the utilization of the processed data, as well as the application-sided reaction on changes of the context is raising another interesting research area.
