Enabling Distributed Context Entity Discovery for an Internet-of-Things Platform
2015 (English)In: IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Systems, IEEE Press , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)Text
Use of context has been prevailing in distributed computing with the emergence of mobile computing. An entity is said to be context-aware if it responds to context changes. These distributed context-aware entities share context information in order to make intelligent decisions or carry out important tasks. MediaSense, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform, offers such intelligent delivery of context information to any host- anywhere. However, such an IoT platform is facing challenge of discovering context entities. In view of this, this paper particularly addresses the challenge of discovering distributed context entities by extending the distributed protocol, Distributed Context eXchange Protocol (DCXP), for MediaSense platform. In particular, a publish/subscribe approach has been employed to overcome the challenge which enables fast context entity discovery.
