Contexte en Interaction Homme-Machine : le contexteur

Abstract : This study talks about context-aware computing for interactive systems, i.e. systems able to identify circumstances which surround user actions in order to offer adapted services. In response to the expansion of proposals on the subject, this study presents three complementary contributions serving the upstream design, the software design and the implementation: • A context definition which must be seen as set of situations. A situation is a set of peripheral variables for the user considered task. One purpose is to distinguish the system context and the user context; and also their intersection: the Net context. • A conceptual model which aims at defines guide lines for implementing context sensitive systems based on the contextor concept. A contextor is a software abstraction which provides values of observables concerning the system context. The composition of contextors makes possible the build of context-aware applications. • A model validation which will use implementation of contextors to build real-life examples of context-aware applications.
