The general long-term goal of the project Access Interactive Mobile Services (AIMS) is to target everyday mobile objects; however, our current development efforts target only the mobile phones. The AIMS project offers an innovative mobile application solution to transform your personal mobile phones from service consumers to service hosts. This enable the mobile phones to disseminate their content as services that may include calendars, contacts, gallery, location, and so on.
AIMS enables its users to gain remote IP access to the mobile services that are hosted on their own or their contacts' cell phones using a simple web interface. For this reason, the project AIMS is divided into parts; the mobile application and the remote web access application. The mobile application developed within AIMS enables the mobile phone user to allow or disallow the service access to its contacts by using a buddy list. The services developed within the scope of AIMS are hosted on the mobile phones and focuses on the aspects, such as, presence, messaging, remote configuration of contacts, call history and profiles, phone gallery etc. On the other hand, a remote web access application tightly integrates with the AIMS mobile application and its services. This application is used to remotely access and interact with the services provided by the mobile user. For each service, a web access interface is provided that brings the social and fun aspect to the application. For example, the user of the AIMS mobile application may allow his colleagues, friends and family to interact and consume the published mobile content using a simple web interface. The aspects of illegal access are also addressed by the project by defining a formal service access and registration procedure. The project AIMS is a first step towards a direct integration of the enterprise and mobile computing applications.
