: To support higher level of intelligence in real-time applications, the real-time active database (RTADB) should have powerful reasoning capability to solve complicated problems, especially the problems with temporal properties. This consequently requires the event condition-action (ECA) rules in RTADB to have strong expressiveness for complicated temporal information in the system. In this paper, we present a novel graphical ECA rule to describe high-level complicated temporal information that is close to user’s view. Furthermore, smart home applications are used to validate the proposed rule.
