Abstract

We have categorised the characteristics and the content of pervasive computing

environments (PCEs), and demonstrated why a non-dynamic approach to

knowledge conceptualisation in PCEs does not fulfil the expectations we may have from them. Consequently, we have proposed a formalised computational model,

the FCM, for knowledge representation and reasoning in PCEs which, secures the

delivery of situation and domain specific services to their users. The proposed

model is a user centric model, materialised as a software engineering solution,

which uses the computations generated from the FCM, stores them within software

architectural components, which in turn can be deployed using modern software

technologies. The model has also been inspired by the Semantic Web (SW) vision

and provision of SW technologies. Therefore, the FCM creates a semantically rich situation-specific PCE based on SWRL-enabled OWL ontologies that allows

reasoning about the situation in a PCE and delivers situation specific service.

The proposed FCM model has been illustrated through the example of remote

patient monitoring in the healthcare domain. Numerous software applications

generated from the FCM have been deployed using Integrated Development

Environments and OWL-API.
