Location Aware Communication/RAUM

May 11th, 2012  |  Published in Research

RAUM is a communication principle for spontaneous communication between small devices in Ubiquitous Computing environments. Its central idea is to use location information to assign producers and consumers of communication events in such environment and provide location aware and location dependent routing to distribute information within Ubiquitous Computing environments. The centre of the RAUM system consists of a hybrid (geometric and semantic or symbolic) location model for describing indoor locations and a location aware, subscription driven routing algorithm.
