The eu-DOMAIN project will develop a new, innovative European ambient intelligence service platform for automatic, context sensitive offering and contracting of mobile web services across heterogeneous networks. The eu-DOMAIN service platform will interconnect people, devices, buildings and content in an interoperable network.
The eu-DOMAIN platform can be deployed in a broad range of industrial, government, healthcare and other citizen applications. In the project, the platform will be validated in two sectors: Building facility management and e-Health services. eu-DOMAIN supports mobility among users and workers by integrating them with seamlessly accessible ubiquitous intelligent surroundings that support self-configuring devices using semantic agents and tools for ambient awareness and decision support.
eu-DOMAIN opens up for entirely new ways of working in collaborative work environments across distributed organisations by offering mobile, ad-hoc trusted services over heterogeneous universal communication lines. It supports working-out-of-workspace by providing seamless delivery-on-demand of content and establishes multimodal exchange of knowledge amongst people, machines and devices. eu-DOMAIN uses intelligent user interfaces based on context-sensitivity and automatic user profiling, tailored to the need of the mobile user. An integral part of the project is the development of realistic business models for users and service providers.
The business models will be based on the concept of value-nets and emphasis will be made on identifying value creation and new business opportunities for SME's. The platform will be available after the completion of the project to stimulate take-up. The main technological innovation in the eu-DOMAIN platform lies in its 3-tier intelligence pools based on a hierarchal client/server structure. Network, application and location intelligence is guiding interaction between service providers, fixed and mobile locations and devices.
