Paper discusses the development of a pervasive home message reminder system designed for people with cognitive disabilities. The authors focus on choosing the most appropriate devices for transmitting messages, and discuss the possibilities of dynamic cooperation between different types of devices, hardware, and software applications. The prototype system attempts to locate, identify, and notify the client of upcoming appointment. Four main aspects of the prototype are discussed: (1) localization and identification of the client, (2) finding devices for communication and delivering messages according to the position of devices and the position of the client, (3) spontaneous networking, discovery services, and service composition, and (4) moving a running application to a new location. A technological evaluation of the system is presented, which was created by researchers at the Departement d’Informatique at the Universite Sherbrooke in Canada.
