On the Applicability of Rule-Based Programming to Location Inference

Kirsten Terfloth, Georg Wittenburg, Jochen Schiller, Katharina Hahn— 2006

Location-based services offer a powerful approach to provide highly relevant information and functionality to a mobile user. Addressing the problem of location inference, we expand the design space by proposing to employ rule-based programming techniques. Based on position coordinates as well as data gathered by environmental sensors, either a precise location or an abstract location class can be deduced. Both types of location may then be utilized to trigger services in an event-centric manner.
