This paper describes the SimCon (Simulated Context) Generator which combines data on the state of a Virtual Reality building with the SimCon Model to generate interactive location context for the rapid evaluation of Smart Building Applications. The paper evaluates the simulated context against physical readings. The SimCon Model does not set out to replace deterministic models, but rather allow for rapid configuration of simulated context early in the building design cycle to evaluate the impact of uncertainty in context on application behavior.
