Context-aware systems are a component of a ubiquitous computing or pervasive computing environment. Three important aspects of context include the following: where you are, who you are with, and what resources are nearby. Although location is a primary capability, location-aware does not necessarily capture information of interest that are mobile or changing. Context-aware, in contrast, is used more generally to include nearby people, devices, lighting, noise level, network availability, and even a social situation, such as whether someone is with a family member or a friend from school.
The purpose of this project is to introduce a healthcare application named ‘Care Taker’ that facilitates a longitudinal study in which data is gathered from a user’s smartphone over a period of time using a context aware application. This data is then analyzed to give a user actionable health related recommendations.
