Abstract

The Ambient Intelligence paradigm has evolved significantly during the last few years and aims at developing context-aware and adaptive systems that enable people to use personalized services. Contextawareness, semantics enriched services and adaptivity are among the features that characterize Ambient Intelligence systems. In this paper, we describe an ontology-based user model that captures and formally describes profile and context information, and enables rule-based reasoning on the available data to support personalized context-aware navigation services. We also describe how the proposed model is used as a basic building block for the development of a contextual guide for users in indoor environments, C-NGINE [1] (Contextual Navigation Guide for INdoor Environments).
