Mobile terminal information value added functionality

Objective

Mobile terminals are evolving into a ubiquitous computing platform. Although they are excellent candidates for mobile data monitoring their information gathering and processing capabilities are still underutilised. MOTIVE enabled terminals are expected to transparently store, pre-process and upload to the network (for further processing) historical information about the monitored data.

MOTIVE project will demonstrate the value of this innovative concept by enhancing existing processes and enabling the provision of new context aware services. MOTIVE will define a multi-layered system architecture and functionality addressing issues such as terminal local processing, user control (when and how information is revealed), data transfer load, network side processing/storage and real time vs. off-line information collection modes.

MOTIVE will investigate three key areas:
- Integrated End-to-End User Experience Monitoring: revealing terminal, network, service and application performance as experienced by the end user, so as to support fault management, network configuration or even application design corrective actions.
- Ubiquitous Terminal Assisted Positioning: Exploiting historical information collected while in idle mode (e.g. received signal strength from various radio access technologies) so as to increase the accuracy of positioning techniques, both outdoors and indoors.
- Anonymous Mobile Community Services: Querying for impersonalized information that resides in a community of terminals while respecting user anonymity and privacy. For instance, the retrieval of road traffic condition as determined by the terminal velocity in that area.
