    Daidalos is an EU 6th framework programme Integrated research Project with 46 partners coming from the academic, research and industrial sectors. It is focused on the integration of various fixed and mobile communication technologies such as Ethernet, WLAN, TD-CDMA and DVB-T, and the creation of a pervasive services framework which leverages the underlying communications infrastructure for the deployment of innovative multimedia services for consumption by both businesses and personal users. The framework embodies technologies and research work drawn from several different areas to address the requirements of pervasive services : security and privacy, accounting and charging, location and context awareness, personalisation, rules and event management, dynamic service discovery and (re)composition. This allows the creation of services which are aware of and capable of learning personal preferences, are aware of where the user is and what he or she is doing and are capable of changing their form and makeup to reflect changes. The accompanying video illustrates an example scenario where several such pervasive services interact with the user and his environment to help him with his daily tasks in a helpful and unintrusive manner.
