Plan-Driven Pervasive Computing

Unknown author (2006-03-01)

The goal of human-centered, pervasive computing should be to hide the details of the computing environment, allowing users to concentrate on their goals, rather than on the direct management of devices. This paper describes a system that operates at the level of goals and plans, rather than individual resources. It adaptively selects from its plan library that plan which is likely to best achieve the user s goal in view of his preferences and current resource availability. Once the plan and resources are selected, it monitors the execution of the plan, dispatching subtasks when they are ready to be executed.
