Thesis about Pervasive Coordination Model

Abstract: Pervasive computing deals with the computational power embedded into daily used objects. The focus of this field is to support the user with all those devices by preventing explicitly interacting when doing his task. The system should interact with the human in a rather implicit and non-intrusive way. Since the number of devices and their current context used in human activity is variable the system must be based on a flexible and reliable coordination framework. A good coordination minimizes the explicit and intrusive interaction between humans and computational devices.

The goal of this master thesis is to create a generic coordination model, which can be used in various scientific fields like computer science, economic and social science. Generally it defines how the world is composed and what dependencies occur between entities. Clear definitions of activities and communication are essential parts of the model and help to define the dynamic aspects. The second part of the master thesis concerns with a more specific coordination model for pervasive computing, which is deviated from the generic coordination model. At the end a prototype validates the model. It is based on the pervasive platform uMove of the PAI research group and involves tracking of entities in a smart environment.
