Context aware application model for connected devices

用于所连接的设备的上下文感知应用模型

Abstract

在此描述了一种应用管理系统,其使用基于用户当前正在做什么以及用户正在使用什么平台的上下文信息来确定向用户提供哪些应用并且影响用户调用的应用的行为。系统提供了与应用清单中的上下文数据耦合的硬件/软件驱动策略管理器以提供设备特有和情景特有的应用模式。这样的模型充分利用设备特有的动态特性来创建应用的上下文感知的安装、编目、管理、交互和卸载,由此提供更佳的用户参与和体验。因此,应用管理系统使得用户更容易找到相关应用、配置应用以良好地在用户的当前设备上运行、以及使应用体验与用户当前正在做的事更相关。
An application management system is described herein that uses context information based on what the user is currently doing and what platform the user is using to determine which applications to offer to a user and to affect behavior of applications that the user invokes. The system provides a hardware/software driven policy manager coupled with context data in an application manifest to provide for device- and situation-specific application modes. Such a model leverages device-specific dynamics to create context aware installation, cataloging, management, interaction, and uninstallation of applications, hence providing better user engagement and experience. Thus, the application management system makes it easier for users to find relevant applications, configures applications to work well on the user's present device, and makes application experiences more relevant to what the user is currently doing.
