Abstract—The behavior of pervasive applications depend not only on their internal state and user interactions but also on contexts sensed during their execution. In this work, we present a collaborative context-aware service platform based on hybrid context management model (enhanced CoCA). It performs reasoning and decisions based on context data, context semantics, and related rules and policies. Such data is organized into a hybrid context management model (HCoM). The platform also introduces a neighborhood collaboration mechanism to facilitate peer collaboration in order to share their resources. We have developed an initial prototype of the platform. Our preliminary test shows that the platform is a promising data independent development environment for pervasive context-aware applications and it possesses good standard of scalability.

Index Terms—CoCA, context management, reasoning, context awareness, pervasive computing
