Abstract

Context-aware systems typically use data sensed from the environment to drive adaptive behaviour. Sensed data is inherently imprecise and uncertain: in addition, new uncertainties are introduced when sensed data is fused with other data to infer context at the more abstract level of situations. We present an uncertainty model which aggregates context uncertainty and provides mechanisms to capture uncertainty at situation level. We demonstrate the application of the model in a sample scenario using an experimental data set
