The main goal of the project D-LOMS as part of the ITEA project LOMS consists of significantly easing the development and deployment process for location-based services which is intended to be achieved through new methods and tools. This goal is inspired by the assumption that in future scenarios certain functions accessed by the mobile user will be dynamically offered by the ambience. For the convenient usage within a specific scenario the composition and configuration of the service environment should be (potentially proactively) triggered by contextual (location) information.
The results aim at a significant improvement of the whole engineering life-cycle (service development, deployment and configuration). It is envisaged to apply the developed methodology and the tools to at least two trial services (B2B and B2C) in order to validate the project results, i.e. the methodology and the tools.
Through the devised technology small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) should be enabled to more easily deploy location-based ambient services. The project results are thus intended to improve the operating efficiency of SMEs in the area of location-based services and to create new business potentials suited to maintain jobs or even increase employment.
In general, the project contributes to the C-LAB main topic Mobility. Within the project C-LAB has a stake in the development of a consistent methodology for integrating sensor data into the implementation location-based services. Moreover, work is conducted in the area advanced User Interfaces regarding the definition of services permitting to integrate augmented reality into such UIs. C-LAB is going to assess the suitability of the concepts by means of mobile e-services in the area of mobile maintenance, mobile media and mobile health applications.
