Abstract

Construct differs from other pervasive systems platforms in a number of key respects. It is completely standards based, using RDF as its data exchange model and ZeroConf for resource discovery. It supports a knowledge centric model of interaction where clients' actions are driven by queries and triggers about the context of thesystem. It uses gossiping to maintain a consistent state across a distributed data structure, which maximises robustness and scalability and avoids many problems with hot-spots and hot-paths in communications. Finally, ittreats all information sources uniformly as sensors acting as inputs to uncertain reasoning algorithms.
