context-aware pervasive services ()

Areas of Expertise

The institute's expertise in software engineering encompasses the entire development lifecycle, and we focus on developing the approaches and tools to improve the engineering process of both emerging and widely used software systems.

Projects

Context-Active Resilience in Cyber Physical systems (CAR)
Context-active resilience is a novel concept of CPS resilience proposed in this action, which emphasises active and even proactive response to the dynamic state of CPS and its users in real-time. CAR Patterns will be identified via the empirical analysis of practical CPS systems, and specified with...
TSProperties
Searching for a holiday property currently requires prospective clients to search multiple websites. There is an identified need for a tool that will provide a quick, easy way for potential visitors to locate and book holiday accommodation without the need to make multiple enquiries The aim of the...
eTourism
This Innovation Voucher in collaboration with Edinburgh Travel Limited aims to build a novel and effective web based e-tourism service to make the tour as pleasant and memorable as possible. Service and information will be adaptive and be personalised to the individual user contexts.
To deliver a Mobile Tourist Platform for the Scottish mountain biking tourist industry in association with Go-Where
7Ahead
This project seeks to develop a digital magazine concept as a means of differentiation and to satisfy the perceived demand for customised additional content such as event reviews, images, video and news items on performers, venues and genres.
ArbAid: Personal safety beacon registration and information delivery system
Design for a system for managing information about personal safety beacons for outdoor activities in remote locations. The user will be able to register a device and provide personal details about themselves and their activities for use by emergency search and rescue teams.
