Disaster areas typical to deal with unexpected and sudden disasters, such as earthquakes and terrorist attacks, can take advantage of context-awareness, namely the capability of providing applications with full awareness of current execution context, to increase the possibility of saving human lives. Unfortunately, context-aware services in disaster areas require efficient and reliable context data distribution. Towards this direction, we present our quality-based context data distribution infrastructure, and we introduce two optimizations useful to improve both distribution efficiency and reliability. Experimental results, obtained by means of simulations, validate our solutions.

Abstract

Disaster areas typical to deal with unexpected and sudden disasters, such as earthquakes and terrorist attacks, can take advantage of context-awareness, namely the capability of providing applications with full awareness of current execution context, to increase the possibility of saving human lives. Unfortunately, context-aware services in disaster areas require efficient and reliable context data distribution. Towards this direction, we present our quality-based context data distribution infrastructure, and we introduce two optimizations useful to improve both distribution efficiency and reliability. Experimental results, obtained by means of simulations, validate our solutions.
