Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper proposes a framework to model dynamically changing situations in real world environments. In the real world, situations naturally vary in how they occur. Understanding these variations is essential to establish accurate knowledge of the environment and provide situation aware services. Current approaches to situation modeling may benefit from the inclusion of a dedicated method of adapting to changes in how situations occur over time. The proposed framework is introduced and a description of its components and their relations is provided. The proposed implementation of the framework is described in a smart office based scenario.
