Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide a view on situation, activity and goal awareness (SAGAware) in ubiquitous computing. It discusses these concepts, articulates their roles in scalability and prevalence of pervasive applications, and speculates the future development.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper is a visionary essay that introduces the background, elaborates the basic concepts and presents the authors' views and insights into SAGAware research in pervasive computing based on the latest state of the art of the development of pervasive computing and its applications.
Findings – SAGAware is closely related to the levels of automation and large-scale uptake of pervasive applications. It is an interdisciplinary research area requiring collaboration and cooperation of multiple research communities.
Research limitations/implications – The paper highlights the importance of the SAGAware research and further points out research trends and future research directions.
Practical implications – The paper helps stimulate research interests and draw attention of relevant researchers to this promising research area.
Originality/value – The paper pioneers the investigation of an increasingly important research theme, and presents an in-depth view to its potentials and research trends.
