Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Research in pervasive computing technology is driven by the vision of ubiquitous access to data and computing resources, where this access is enabled through transparent interactions between human users and the embedded computing resources in the environment. This vision promises to impact almost every aspect of our society and our daily lives, improving and helping society in unforeseen ways in areas such as assisted living for aging population, telemedicine, transportation, office and factory environments, national defense, and manufacturing. Technologies such as sensor networks, RFID, wireless networks, personal computing devices, and wearable computers are all offering new opportunities for user-centric applications. This vision presents new challenges for researchers in seamless integration of such massively diverse technologies within our computing environments.
