Abstract

The field of Intelligent Environments (IE)
is maturing to a level at which a range of
sophisticated applications are emerging. Such
systems aim to be context-aware, especially being
adaptable to possibly unpredictable circumstances.
An area of significant potential is that of ‘ambient
assisted living’, with significant advances in fields
such as smart spaces, classrooms, and assisted living
space for the elderly or people with disabilities. In
recent years, however, it has been recognised that
numerous IE systems have been developed without
adopting best practises from software engineering.
The work presented here focuses on the
requirements engineering stage and presents a
framework for IE systems in which an intrinsic
component is context-awareness. Whilst the
framework is intended as a general IE model, we are
currently applying it to the specific area of ambient
assisted living and it is being employed on the
POSEIDON project. It is anticipated that such real
world application of the model will help endorse its
conception and facilitate further refinement of the
framework.
