Ubiquitous Computing: Smart Devices, Environments and Interactions Book Description


This book gives a rounded introduction to the complex field of ubiquitous computing in one volume. It describes how current technology models based upon mobile wireless services relate to and can evolve to support the ubiquitous computing vision. An accompanying website with PPT-slide, problems and solutions, exercises, bibliography, further reading.

The book is partitioned into 3 sections:

"1) Introduction": after describing the vision, challenges and some illustrative examples, this section describes the essential parts of this ubiquitous vision: a wireless (and wired) network infrastructure, computer services constructed so that they are available everywhere and human computer interface design to support the feature of being invisible. This part concludes by describing the rich functionality, complexity and intelligence, ubiquitous computing needs to offer.

"2) Ubiquitous computing" focuses on how we design and implement devices and environments: to support user and object mobility, aggregation and to context (such as location) awareness and adaptation to make service access more invisible to the users.

"3) Ubiquitous intelligence" covers designing and implementing features of intelligence to support ubiquitous computing. A key issue is whether to make the devices smart, the environment smart or both.
