Introduction to pervasive and mobile computing, covering concepts and visions for pervasive computing, sensors, mobile and wearable devices, interfaces for pervasive computing, and Android for developing mobile/wearable systems.
This paper introduces the foundations and technologies for Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing. Since envisioned by Mark Weiser, the concepts of Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing are now reality. This paper will introduce the concepts and technologies needed for building Ubiquitous Computing applications. During the paper we will also cover risks and opportunities in pervasive systems, including privacy, security and ethical considerations. The paper will be complemented by practical experiences gained through building own Ubiquitous Computing applications in the lab.
