Abstract

The increasing number of devices that are invisibly embedded into our surrounding environment as well as the proliferation of wireless communication and sensing technologies are the basis for visions like ambient intelligence, ubiquitous and pervasive computing. The PErvasive Computing in Embedded Systems (PECES) project has developed the technological basis to enable the global cooperation of embedded devices residing in different smart spaces in a context-dependent, secure and trustworthy manner. The PECES project has also developed a set of tools which enable application developers to build and test context aware and secure pervasive computing applications. This paper introduces the PECES middleware that consists of flexible context ontology and a middleware that is capable of dynamically forming execution environments that are secure and trustworthy. This paper presents a set of tools, namely Peces Project Tool, Peces Device Definition Tool, Peces Ontology Instantiation Tool, Peces Security Configuration Tool, Peces Event Editor Tool, Peces Event Diagram Tool and Peces Testing Tool which enables developers to build and test pervasive computing application with the PECES middleware.
