Context-Aware Telephony Over WAP
In this paper we introduce a novel approach to share context to enhance the social quality of remote mobile communication. We provide an analysis of how people start a conversation in situations where they meet physically, especially looking on the influence of the situation. Than this is compared to the way remote communication is initiated using mobile phones. The lack of knowledge about the situation on the other end leads to initiation of calls that are not appropriate in the situation. The solution we propose is to exchange context information before initiating the call. We implemented this concept using the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP). The WML-based Application Context -Call offers a phone interface that provides information about the receiver when setting up a call. The caller can than decide based on that information to place the call, to leave a message or to cancel the call. Privacy issues that arise from this technology are discussed, too.
