Abstract—Context awareness enables smart service discovery and adaptation for mobile and wireless hosts. The contextual data is acquired from sensors present in the smart space, which may be absent. The inherent noisy nature of wireless environments does not guarantee the gathering of correct data. A history module is thus required in conjunction with existing context-aware systems that overcomes these limitations by predicting the data. We present a modular approach that when coupled with existing context managers will be able to provide user preference on the basis of usage history.

Index Terms—Context History, Context Awareness, Ubiquitous Computing
