We present a novel context acquisition and management middleware for mobile phones based on Qt (C++ based cross-plattform API) for S60 called mSense. In our middleware, sensor nodes encapsulate platform level APIs for seamlessly accessing hardware sensors, simulated sensors or web services. Aggregators (channels) combine information from other nodes to generate new knowledge. For example, GPS, accelerometer and compass could be combined to provide a more accurate inertial sensor node. The output is supplied via a native interface or broadcasted through web services.
