|As intelligent devices become affordable and wireless infrastructure becomes pervasive, the potential to combine, or aggregate, device functionality to provide a user with a better experience grows. Often, there will be multiple devices providing similar functionality that the user will have to choose from for the aggregation. This paper presents the design and prototype implementation of a system for automatic selection of devices for aggregation in a dynamic environment. It allows a user to express trade-offs between the quality of device attributes, user distraction, and aggregation stability. This approach enables a user to have a richer experience without having to constantly worry about the device and the environment details.|
