Context-aware pervasive systems applied to heritage and touristic resources


Context awareness and pervasive systems enable a model of computing in which users interact with mobile devices in order to gather environment information from their sensors (location, weather, altitude…). This information can be used to implement applications addressed to guide users in their visits to cultural, heritage or touristic facilities, helping them to get additional services such as patrimonial description or contact with other users. It also permits to reason and make inferences on contextual information and features in such a way to provide users with mobile geolocated services such as path finding, small group meetings planning or personalized information.
