•Provides access to device resources acrosswebinos enabled devices – physical & virtual•Provides access to connected sensors andactuators to a users own or other device•Connections could be established via bluetooth,WLAN, GSM/UMTS, DLNA, UPnP,•webinos devices can interact which each otherregardless of the respective owner(preconditioned privacy/security policies will notbe violated).•Allows to clone/migrate existing profile settingsfrom one webinos device to another (coveringe.g. login credentials, settings and applications),User types inSMS Message on TVSMS will be send via aconnected mobiledevice77

•User Profile Information’s: A user is able tostore static personal data in the webinossystem (name, gender, address, etc.),which could be accessed by an application.•Without the involvement of the user, alsouser preferences can be stored* – alsoaccessible by an application (e.g. preferreddevices for specific tasks).•Support of Authentication & Authorizationmechanisms (single-sign-on).•Account Management allows to managemultiple accounts in a single touch point – aprior registration to a service required (touse existing login credentials as e.g. forFacebook, Twitter, …)UserProfileApplications...Authentication / AuthorizationUserPreferencesAccountMgmt.e with privacy/security policies88

UseCaseFamily:•Push of applications, e.g. where the userinstalls a new application on his mobile phone,all other screens will automatically receive thesame application.•Remote installation of applications•An application is able to outsource code toanother connected device (performance,display size or sensor type reasons)•Application Advertisements based on userpreferences•Background execution of Applications•Mechanism to extend webinos with proprietaryAPIs (for developers)App99

•Subscribe and publish events•Context triggered uploading/synchronizationof data (in case of network loss, connectionquality, battery etc.)•Detection of other webinos devices proximity•Resume uploading of data•Sharing app states across several users•Allow a seamless application usage incase the user changes the device/screen.•End session when out of proximity•Bi-directional communication in real-time•Synchronization of data between multipledevices1010

•Different application discovery methods:•Recommendation of new applications•Application advertisings within alreadyinstalled applications, etc.•Execution of local available applications andapplications which resides on a server orconnected device.•Installation and update of applications•Reporting methods to allow a user to report aproblem with an application to theresponsible service provider•Remote application removal1111

•Automatic adaption of an applications’ user interface to the used device,including adaptation to different input methods (keyboard & mouse,Touch, Remote Control)•Automatic selection of a pre-produced media type related to devicecapabilities (images, audio/video formats and sizes).12

•Support of contextual information based on:•Device Context•Event Based Context•Finding Devices in Close Physical Proximity•and Social Proximity•Seamless Session Transfer between Devices (e.g. content distribution)•Publicity and privacy of Context Information•Obtaining Context Informationthrough Sensors and Automated Datasources•Finding and using the contextinformation of local and remoteDevices•Discovering and Updating ContextInformation of a Shared Capability9th November 201013
