MetadataVis full innførsel
This thesis is submitted in partially fulfillment of the requirement for the degree of Master in ICT at Faculty of Engineering and Science at University of Agder, Grimstad, Norway. The Master project documented in this thesis is a part of Ericsson‐UiA cooperative research on handling relations between people in the ubiquitous computing environments. First of all, we would like to thank Dean’s Prof. Frank Reichert for introducing us to the fascinating field of mobile services. We benefit a lot from his valuable academic and industrial experience and insightful comments on our project work. Then, we want to address special thanks to Assoc. Prof. Ole Christoffer Granmo for his excellent tutoring. It is him who pulled us out of the painful “trial‐and‐error” period in the research. His encouragements are always the most important driving force for us to accomplish this project successfully. We also wish to thank Research Fellow Anis Yazidi for his thorough discussions with us over the last few months. Some core papers provided by him are very helpful for us to understand the theoretical background of our research problem. He has also exerted efforts to help us to accomplish the prototype development. In addition, Prof. Frank Reichert and Research Fellow Anis Yazidi have also provided some important comments in order to help us to improve the report writing. Finally, we want to say thanks to Sissel Andreassen, Stein Bergsmark and all other teachers in the ICT Department. Your dedications make us have a beautiful and fruitful time studying in Norway.
