Abstract

As the urgent need for unprecedented level of convenience, enjoyment and quality of lives becomes ever more apparent, interest in smart homes is on the rise. Recent advances in computer and communication technologies have offered many promising solutions to the realm of assistive living. However, to allow a smart home promotes users’ comfort and entertainment through the management of technology within the home and connections to the world beyond, applications in such environment must be context aware so that they can anticipates and responds to the need of the users as they move about in their environments. Nevertheless, there is a major gap between practice and aspiration. In this paper, we propose context-aware semantic infrastructure – a novel concept whose aim is to move from the current state-of-the-art of smart home technologies to the future infrastructure that is needed to support the full richness of the smart home vision. We focus predominantly on the methodology of OWL-based semantic modeling, content generation and management. The framework exploits semantic web and context-awareness technologies to support context representation and storage, strategy querying, semantic reasoning of contexts and knowledge management in smart homes. This context-aware semantic infrastructure can provide a guide for the subsequent research.
