Abstract: Body networking calls for novel methods and tools for a tight and implicit man machine confluence. One way to achieve this is to make technical systems sensitive and reactive to user personal situation. This paper describes service-oriented software architecture, designed to respond to the user via a biocybernetic loop that transforms changes in user behaviour into services that may be incorporated into a highly personalised user-centric system. These services are used to drive real-time system adaptation tailored to a specific individual in a particular usage context.

Keywords: pervasive adaptation; body sensor networks; user-centric systems; human-machine interaction; HMI; adaptive body networking; personalised body networking; service-oriented architecture; SOA; biocybernetics; user behaviour changes; services.
