Since the early 2000 there has been repeated interest in developing context aware software applications, which can react to and understand the environment, and sometimes become self-tuned and situation aware. The idea of context awareness is now speeding towards mobile and wireless computing and have applications from Internet of Things and Wearable Healthcare to Pervasive Cyber Physical Spaces. This paper looks at possibilities of applying the same paradigm in situations of machine-human interactions and focuses on cases where teamwork between humans and devices, which collectively operate in risky and dangerous real-life environments, is essential for accomplishing a given task. It is important to address the issue of moving towards the edges of computational networks, utilizing possible fog/cloudlets solution and move away from cloud computing. The example used for the illustration of the proposal is in the field of the robotic explosive hazard detonation in war thorned countries.
