Smart home, happy resident
Problem being addressed
One of important goals for smart homes is to improve convenience in residents’ life via reducing interactions with IoT services. Invoking IoT services on behalf of residents by IoT-based applications is a promising direction to make residents free from repetitive efforts of interacting with IoT services.
Conflicts usually cause unwanted consequences and should be detected and resolved. The researchers focus on detecting different types of conflicts in single resident smart homes. Conflict detection plays an important role in recommending appropriate IoT services for the resident. The researchers come up with a novel framework that proposes an ontology-based context model to capture different types of context related to IoT services, a conflict model to define different types of conflicts based on the ontology-based context model and a new conflict detection approach.
Advantages of this solution
A compelling feature of the proposed approach is that it combines the strengths of ontology-based explicit context modeling and that of real-time data analysis technique, making the context model flexible and scalable.
