The computing power of mobile computers is comparable to the PCs of some years ago. In addition, PDAs or mobile phones are equipped with a high connectivity and provide a multimodal interface by a high resolution display, vibration feedback and sound functionality. This feature enables the use of mobile phones as personal information manager and personal assistance for business and the everyday life. The progress of personal assistance is supported by the inclusion of external environment information and user related data. By using new interfaces and sensors, an additional and comprehensive understanding of the user's situation can be determined. Hereby a planning of the user's task is supported and a scheduling of the user's activities will be available.
This chapter shows an improving approach of the generic architecture for mobile personal situation aware assistance and describes the modules by sample applications and gives an outlook on upcoming challenges of research in activity and assistance models.
