The vast amounts of data about people, things and the environment will require new ways of handling, searching and presenting information. New applications will increasingly be able to respond to data coming from the real world and take appropriate action without human intervention. Ubiquitous computing technologies are believed to be the third wave in computing by building a global computing environment where seamless and invisible access to computing resources. The Semantic Web is specially a web of machinereadable information whose meaning is well defined by standards so that both people and computers can understand. This paper has present a attempt to apply Semantic Web technologies to ubiquitous computing, It takes family ontology as an example to show how Semantic Reasoning System (SRS) can make the system automatic by improving the interoperability between systems, applications, and information, It uses OWL for defining a domain family ontology, then set up rules in JESS engine, finally run reasoning by Racer.
