From traditional software systems to context-oriented applications
- Context awareness
- Dynamic adaptation
- Programming languages
- Software Variability
Mainstream programming languages do not enable software applications to easily adapt their behaviour dynamically to changing contexts of use, such as time, space, weather, user preferences or habits, or a device's energy consumption or battery level.
We investigate new programming languages and abstractions specifically dedicated to define context-specific variations, and to allow these variations to be enabled dynamically, even on the fly and for already deployed software.
The UCL collaboration offer
• Design & development of tailor-made context-aware programming languages;
• Expertise and support in the implementation of context-aware programming languages and applications;
• Extending programming languages to make them more context-aware;
• Awareness raising for the need of context-awareness in software-intensive systems.
– Cases studies such as a mobile city guide, adaptive web applications, a car dashboard system, an enterprise resource management system, an emergency support system.
– Possible application fields are “smart” scenarios (devices, vehicles, buildings…), mobile apps, user empowerment, participative citizenship, adaptive web apps.
If your company is developing or interested in software products, products or services that depend on software, which may benefit from the enhanced possibilities offered by context awareness and dynamic adaptation to context of use, we are interested in collaborations ranging:
• from awareness raising and joint case studies,
• to the development and application of state-of-the-art technology.
