This paper presents a mobile application called ICAPS (Intelligent Context Aware Profile Switching) an intelligent system that takes advantage of three common technologies (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS) to provide the user with automated profile switching techniques depending on the user’s context. The system combines the three technologies together so that it determines the contexts around the user using one or more of these technologies. Upon detecting the user’s context, the system intelligently switches between profiles that are either set up by the user, or have been provided by an external source.
