Abstract
Delivering remote healthcare services without deteriorating the `patient experience¿ requires building highly usable and adaptive applications. Efficient context data collection and management make possible to infer extra knowledge on the user¿s situation, making easier the design of these advanced ubiquitous applications. This contribution, part of a work in progress which aims at building an operative AmI middleware, presents a generic architecture to provide u-healthcare services, to be delivered both in mobile and home environments. In particular, we address the design of the Context Management Component (CMC), the module that takes context data from the sensing layer and performs data fusion and reasoning to build an aggregated `context image¿. We especially explain the requirements on data modelling and the functional features that are imposed to the CMC. The resulting logical multilayered architecture -composed by acquisition and fusion, inference and reasoning levels- is detailed, and the technologies needed to develop the Context Management Component are finally specified. Keywords: Semantic reasoning, context-aware architecture, data fusion, user experience, Ambient Intelligence.
