Abstract: The increasing number of devices that are invisibly embedded into our surrounding environment as well as the proliferation of wireless communication and sensing technologies are the basis for visions like ambient intelligence, ubiquitous and pervasive computing. PErvasive Computing in Embedded Systems (PECES) project develops the technological basis to enable the global cooperation of embedded devices residing in different smart spaces in a context-dependent, secure and trustworthy manner. This paper presents PECES middleware that consists of flexible context ontology, a middleware that is capable of dynamically forming execution environments that are secure and trustworthy. This paper also presents set of tools to facilitate application development using the PECES middleware.
