A COMMUNITY-CENTERED ARCHITECTURE FOR THE DEPLOYMENT OF UBIQUITOUS TELEMEDICINE SYSTEMS

Federico Cabitza, Marco P. Locatelli, Carla Simone

Abstract

In this paper, we present an ubiquitous and pervasive computing architecture, CASMAS, aimed at supporting cooperation among the members of a community and their devices. We also show how CASMAS can be augmented by the WOAD framework, which was developed independently to model and express coordination mechanisms in document-mediated communities. We take the distributed hypertension monitoring case as an exemplifying and sufficiently complex scenario to show the feasibility and advantages of the our semantically informed modular approach. The scenario is then declined in terms of architectural components and cooperation-oriented mechanisms that are shared between the devices and entities of the designed community of care.
