Testing and demonstrating context-aware applications is challenging. Gathering and using ‘life’ contextual information for these purposes, often requires significant extra development effort. Furthermore, repeating tests and demonstrations of context-aware applications that use ‘life’ context information, in a controlled way, is difficult or often impossible to achieve. This paper presents a context simulation framework, called SimuContext, which abstracts from the complexity of interfacing with physical context sources and facilitates testing and demonstrating context-aware applications in a controlled way.
