There has been a move of context-aware systems into safety-critical domains including healthcare, emergency scenarios, and disaster recovery. These systems are often distributed and deployed on resource-bounded devices. Therefore, developing formal techniques for modelling and designing context-aware systems, verifying requirements and ensuring functional correctness are major challenges. We present a framework for the formal representation and verification of resource-bounded context-aware systems. We give ontological representation of contexts, translate ontologies to a set of Horn clause rules, based on these rules we build multi-agent context-aware systems and encode them into Maude specification, we then verify interesting properties of such systems using the Maude LTL model checker. © 2013 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.
