Pervasive Computing Review

Joshua R. Smith, Class of 2006

Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management

Mentor: Dr. Sunil Kumar

July 31, 2003


Definitions and Rationale

  • What is pervasive computing?

  • Computer of today vs. pervasive computing

  • Interest in automation and simplification


Topics

  • Brief history

  • Applications

    • Infrastructure Systems

    • Personal Systems

  • Critical technologies

  • Adoption Hesitation

  • Conclusions


History

  • Roots in late 1980s at Xerox PARC

  • Merger of two research projects

    • Intuitive input/output device

    • How computers impact people

  • Weiser 1991 Scientific American article


Topics

  • Brief history

  • Applications

    • Infrastructure Systems

    • Personal Systems

  • Critical technologies

  • Adoption Hesitation

  • Conclusions


Applications: Infrastructure Systems

  • Classroom 2000

    • Enhance education by recording lecture (shift attention from notes to speaker)

    • Rapid development strategy


Classroom 2000: Original Prototype Setup


Applications: Infrastructure Systems

  • Classroom 2000

    • Enhance education by recording lecture (shift attention from notes to speaker)

    • Rapid development strategy


Applications: Personal Systems

  • Inspection / Maintenance

    • BIW, Maine 80:1 return over 3 years (70% reduction in inspection times)


Topics

  • Brief history

  • Applications

    • Infrastructure Systems

    • Personal Systems

  • Critical technologies

  • Adoption Hesitation

  • Conclusions


Critical Technologies

  • Technologies exist independently, pervasive computing focuses on integrating them

  • Wireless networking

  • Sensors

  • Portable and embedded displays

  • Software

    • Discovery services, compression, middleware


Topics

  • Brief history

  • Applications

    • Infrastructure Systems

    • Personal Systems

  • Critical technologies

  • Adoption Hesitation

  • Conclusions


Adoption Hesitation

  • Hesitation

    • “Big Brother” – Collection of personal information important for context

    • Privacy and Security

    • RFID


Topics

  • Brief history

  • Applications

    • Infrastructure Systems

    • Personal Systems

  • Critical technologies

  • Adoption Hesitation

  • Conclusions


Conclusions

  • Desktop computers not replaced

    • Working smarter and more efficiently

    • “Always on”

    • Streamlining tedious computing tasks

  • New possibilities

    • Augmented social networks

    • Learning environments

    • Museums, grocery shopping…
