The research of context-aware computing based on wireless sensor network (WSN) aims at intelligently connecting computers, users, and environment. So its application system should be flexibly adaptable to dynamic changes of context and application requirements and proactively provides the information satisfied with current context for users. The middleware can be very effective to provide the support runtime services for context-aware computing. In this paper we propose middleware architecture

We propose a formal context representation model in which a user's context is described by a set of roles and relations correspond to a context space. A middleware prototype has been developed, which detect tourist' physical context and provide reminding. The experiments prove that the model and approach proposed are feasible.
