This article describes the architecture and functionality of a hardware/software platform for context aware services. The implementation of the platform requires several aspects to be taken into account at different levels: technology, algorithms and context-aware applications requiring reliable position estimation. Within the Italian project on Virtual Immersive Communications [1], we realized a multiuser immersive guide taking into account several solutions and implementation for all levels.
