AN APPROACH TO MORE RELIABLE CONTEXT-AWARE SYSTEMS BY ASSESSING AMBIGUITY - Taking into Account Indetermination and Vagueness in Smart Environments

Aitor Almeida, Diego López-de-Ipiña

Abstract

Often context-aware systems consider the environment a defined element. Meanwhile reality is full of vagueness and uncertainty. Taking into account these aspects we can provide a more grounded and precise picture of the environment, creating context-aware systems that are more flexible and reliable. It also provides a more accurate inference process, making possible to consider the quality of the context data. In order to tackle this problem we have created an ontology that considers the ambiguity in smart environments and a data fusion and inference process that takes advantage of that extra information to provide better results.
