Mobile device use has vastly increased in the last few years. Many people use many mobile devices in their daily lives. Context-aware computing is the main feature of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. Context awareness is also an important topic that becomes more available with ubiquitous computing. As the sensors increase, the data collected via mobile device sensors and sensor networks do not have much value because of the difficulty in analysis and understanding the data. Context-aware computing helps us store contextual information and use or search it by mobile devices when we want to see or analyze it. Contextual data can be made more meaningful by context-aware processing. There are different types of data and context information that must be considered. By combining spatial and contextual data, we obtain more meaningful data based on the entities. Contextual data is any information that can be used to characterize the situation of the entity. The entity is a person, place, or object considered relevant to the interaction between the user and an application, including the users and the applications. Using contextual data and good integration to mobile devices adds great value to this data, and combining these with our other data sets will allow us to obtain more useful information and analysis.

NFC feature box: an open, nfc enabler independent mobile payment and identification method
Türk, İsmai; Kesim Çiçekli, Nihan.; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The use of Mobile Devices for electronic payment has increased significantly in the last decade. Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile payment is gaining popularity and it is widely considered to be the technology that will turn smartphones into m-wallets. While a typical wallet contains identification, loyalty, public transport and credit cards, m-wallet solutions currently have well-defined standards for credit card enrollment and usage only. In this thesis, we explore and present the main reason for this...
AntiWare: An Automated Android Malware Detection Tool based on Machine Learning Approach and Official Market Metadata
Akhuseyinoglu, Nuray Baltaci; Akhuseyinoglu, Kamil (2016-10-22)
The prevalence of mobile devices has increased rapidly in recent years. People store valuable data like personal and financial information on those devices. In addition, applying "bring your own device (BYOD)" policy in companies has become popular. Hence, mobile devices are also source of valuable and confidential company information. Accordingly, there is a growing need for malware detection methods and tools to protection mobile devices against attacks targeting them. In this study, an automated feature-...
Semantic Edge Caching and Prefetching in 5G
MEHTEROĞLU, Can; DURMUŞ, Yunus; Onur, Ertan (2017-01-11)
Recent popularity of mobile devices increased the demand for mobile network services and applications that require minimal delay. 5G mobile networks are expected to provide much lesser delay than the present mobile networks. One of the conventional ways for decreasing the latency is caching the content closer to the end user. However, currently deployed methods are not effective enough. In this work-in-progress paper, we propose a new astute caching strategy that is able to smartly predict subsequent user r...
GUI testing of android applications: a systematic mapping
Aydın, Muzaffer; Betin Can, Aysu; Garousi, Vahid; Department of Information Systems (2014)
Popularity of mobile devices is increasing rapidly all around the world. These devices can be used on various systems which are commonly used by the society. These systems are predicted to overtake desktop platform's popularity in the near future. Therefore the quality of mobile applications has vital importance. High quality applications can only be developed with good testing environments. Considering that multi-featured mobile applications have complex user interfaces, we decided to focus on graphical us...
