The Future: Context aware Mobile Phones

Context aware Mobile Phones and Context aware Communications are currently hot Research Topics.

Carnegie Mellon University published a paper about Sensay a context aware Mobile phone prototype, that adapts to dynamically changing environmental and physiological states. In addition to manipulating ringer volume, vibration, and phone alerts, SenSay can provide remote callers with the ability to communicate the urgency of their calls, make call suggestions to users when they are idle, and provide the caller with feedback on the current status of the Sensay user.

The MIT also has a Context aware Mobile Phone Project. MIT developed the MIThril engine. The MIThril Inference Engine (MIE) provides a simple, flexible, and modular foundation for constructing context-aware applications. We are currently implementing the the MIE on our Linux-based MIThril computing cores, with the eventual goal of porting its core features to the Motorola i85s iDen phone.
Nokia also has a take on Context aware communication.

This systems are still in research, but will eventually make it into the feature-set of our mobile phones.
