Adapting to current context of usage is of fundamental importance for pervasive computing services. As the technology for acquiring contextual information is increasingly available and as it is producing growing amounts of data, there is the need for tools to organize such data before delivering it to services. This produces a sort of “knowledge networks” representing comprehensive knowledge related to a “situation” in an expressive yet manageable way. In this paper, also with the help of a simple case study, we motivate the need for situation-awareness and for knowledge networks, introduce a reference architecture for knowledge networks, and exemplify a prototype implementation thereof. Finally, current and future research directions are discussed.
