A Spatially Dependent Communication Model for Ubiquitous Systems
Models and conceptualizations are necessary to understand and design ubiquitous systems that are context–aware not just from a technological point of view. The current technological trend depicts a scenario in which space, movement and more generally the environment in which the computation takes place represent aspects that should be considered as first class concepts. The aim of this paper is to propose the Multilayered Multi-Agent Situated System (MMASS) model as a suitable support for the definition of conceptual architectures for ubiquitous systems. The model provides a strong concept of agent environment, which represents an abstraction of a physical environment and conceptual aspects as well, and the agent interaction model is strongly dependent on the spatial structure of the environment. After a brief presentation of MMASS, related concepts and mechanisms, a sample application domain illustrating how it can be adopted to model an ubiquitous system will be given.1
