This book provides an introduction to the complex field ofubiquitous computing Ubiquitous Computing (also commonly referred to asPervasive Computing) describes the ways in which currenttechnological models, based upon three base designs: smart (mobile,wireless, service) devices, smart environments (of embedded systemdevices) and smart interaction (between devices), relate to andsupport a computing vision for a greater range of computer devices,used in a greater range of (human, ICT and physical) environmentsand activities. The author details the rich potential of ubiquitouscomputing, the challenges involved in making it a reality, and theprerequisite technological infrastructure. Additionally, the bookdiscusses the application and convergence of several current majorand future computing trends. Key Features: * Provides an introduction to the complex field of ubiquitouscomputing * Describes how current technology models based upon sixdifferent technology form factors which have varying degrees ofmobility wireless connectivity and service volatility: tabs, pads,boards, dust, skins and clay, enable the vision of ubiquitouscomputing * Describes and explores how the three core designs (smartdevices, environments and interaction) based upon currenttechnology models can be applied to, and can evolve to, support avision of ubiquitous computing and computing for the future * Covers the principles of the following current technologymodels, including mobile wireless networks, service-orientedcomputing, human computer interaction, artificial intelligence,context-awareness, autonomous systems, micro-electromechanicalsystems, sensors, embedded controllers and robots * Covers a range of interactions, between two or more UbiComdevices, between devices and people (HCI), between devices and thephysical world. * Includes an accompanying website with PowerPoint slides,problems and solutions, exercises, bibliography and furtherreading Graduate students in computer science, electrical engineeringand telecommunications courses will find this a fascinating anduseful introduction to the subject. It will also be of interest toICT professionals, software and network developers and othersinterested in future trends and models of computing and interactionover the next decades.
