Abstract Distributed systems are collections of computers that act, work, and appear as a single coherent system. According to the model of Distributed Computing, software services components run in different computers, whereas data are shared among the network. Middleware technologies are used in the context of distributed computing systems in order to facilitate distributed object communication. For example, ICS-FORTH FAmlNE middleware contributes to the interconnection of distributed services within AmI environments. In particular, it provides a common set of APIs targeting a variety of heterogeneous platforms and different programming languages such as Java, C++, .NET, and Python. The increasing availability and use of wireless mobile devices brings about opportunities for new types of distributed applications. However, towards this objective, the adopted middleware needs to support mobile devices. The work reported in this thesis aims to build a FAmlNE middleware extension, called FAmINE4Android. The proposed extension library facilitates the development process of distributed Android mobile applications. In details, it provides the required mechanism and tools in order to support remote communication with distributed objects running on both ordinary PCs and Android mobile devices. The proposed library offers to Android developers functionality identical to FAmlNE's, in a seamless way based on an intuitive Java API. Using FAmINE4Android, Android developers are able to effortlessly create (or re-use existing) distributed real-time applications. The features of the FAmINE4Android middleware have been demonstrated by implementing a case study application in the domain of cultural heritage. This case study refers to a museum guide application, which provides information automatically based on visitors' location. The museum guide application uses the functionality provided by a FAmlNE tracking service running on Windows OS. The tracking service builds upon advanced computer vision algorithms in order to track multiple persons within exhibition spaces using a network of RGB-D cameras. The case study highlights the contribution of the FAmINE4Android middleware towards including mobile devices in distributed computing platforms.
