This thesis is centred on the high-level modelling and simulation of pervasive multimedia devices, systems, applications and environments. It involves the development of a framework that enables pervasive computing to be simulated before the production stage. Pervasive computing is argued as the integration of computers and technology into our everyday lives and as such it encompasses a wide variety of elements from different disciplines. A pervasive computing scenario is dynamically created and adapted at run-time and must be extensible as new devices may be added. Consequently, the conceptualisation and modelling of pervasive computing sevices and applications can be difficult in a real world environment due to the effort required to realise physical prototypes with a wide gamut of possibilities. Simulation-based techniques offer a solution to this problem.
