Abstract
In the Hydra Middleware project context awareness, among many other aspects plays an important role. Context is not only defined by the user's presence but also by identifying available devices and services that are offered by the environment or the devices themselves. Inside the architecture, special components handle contextual information by also separating between core-functionality and the possibility to extend the built-in concept by new components providing context information. This work presents a first step towards ubiquitous and context aware applications in the healthcare and home automation sector. In the scope of the Hydra Middleware project, applications taken from different domains are derived from the current project's state and knowledge. The inclusion of different application domains supports the development of a domain-independent middleware and a wide spectrum of interests for application developers.
