Context-aware software and systems have become an increasingly important topic over the last years. Therefore, different architectures for context management have been developed. Beginning with traditional centralized context management systems, the trend moved on to decentralised distributed context management systems. The use of such distributed systems promises several advantages, such as higher reliability and better scalability. In this paper, we will propose a simple Chord implementation that will help us by its lightweight design to combine these advantages with the use of cost efficient embedded hardware.
