Context-Aware Pervasive System

A context-aware pervasive system is much like any other pervasive system ? a network of things which pervade the physical world, sharing data and networking with one another. However, context aware systems are aware of their physical location, and how that changes over time. Geolocation systems would be an example.

In addition, they are aware of the context for the user and behave accordingly. A context aware interface such as an AR display might behave differently, fetching different data to overlay on the same locations if it knew a user was working, with colleagues to if it knew she was out on a social occasion.
