Abstract: This paper presents a solution for supporting adaptive user interfaces in work environments that require operators to move about in dynamic contexts for manipulating various physical objects. The solution architecture is built upon the use of logical languages for interactive applications integrated with context aware and adaptive features. The proposed architecture is able to adapt to specific aspects of the context during run-time by communicating with a context server and applying the specified adaptation rules. In order to show the possibilities of the proposed solution, we report on its application in the development of an adaptive user interface for a warehouse picking system, and discuss the results of the associated tests.
