Context-aware applications require the development of convenient frameworks. Effective mobility requires that mobile applications can integrate new sensors or new types of information. This is not possible within traditional applications, because a re-design phase in necessary. We describe in this article an agent-based framework supporting sensors' data fusion and context-aware information exchanges. An ontology-based representation of data is used. Exchanges inbetween components are carried

It makes use of wearable sensor, transmitters and cell phones. The wearable sensor is used to determine the state of a user. Transmitters provide geographical information, and cell phones are used as personal assistants.
