Abstract

The diffusion of pervasive systems and the affirmation of the Internet network as technological glue among the individuals have deeply modified the everyday life of our society. In fact, the spread of Smartphones and Tablets has allowed the users to use contents and services everywhere. Among the environments that have been mainly affected by this ‘technological’ wave, the ‘City’ stands out. Therefore, with these new paradigms, the same concept of ‘City’ results altered and enriched with new potentialities. The City is able to talk to its inhabitants offering, according to the contexts, services and contents able to adapt themselves to the needs of the moment. In this paper, we intend to introduce a Context Aware methodology capable of giving contexts and services to the citizens according to their interests and their position inside the city. This methodology has been implemented in a ‘hybrid app’ and tested in a real context.
