SenSUI: a new architecture for pervasive computing


In a pervasive computing environment the devices should seamlessly integrate into a person’s everyday life. In such an open and dynamic environment the systems and sensors must share knowledge and interoperate. Importantly, the sensor data must be enriched by the addition of semantic information such that context and personal circumstances are understood.

New research suggests that semantic enrichment can be achieved by means of a sensory semantic user interface (SenSUI). The SenSUI architecture provides adaptability through explicit and inferred knowledge. The research further suggests the benefits of using an ontology which is based on information about the Devices, Context, Data and Domain.
