Assignment 1 pervasive computing

Assignment 1: Pervasive computing

  • When we think of the word “computer,” we think of a desktop or a laptop

  • But computer technology can be deployed in many other products – called “smart devices” or “embedded chips”

  • Also known as ubiquitous computing

IS112 - Computer Organization


Example of embedded chips

Example of embedded chips

  • In new cars, there is a sensor that determines weight of the front passenger

  • If the weight is over 80 pounds the air bag is turned on (otherwise it is turned off)

  • Airbags have been found to be dangerous for children and small adults – so this is a safety feature

  • This sensor is an example of an embedded chip

IS112 - Computer Organization


How does embedded technology work

How does embedded technology work?

  • In the case of the car, it measures the weight, determines whether it exceeds the required threshold, then turns on the airbag for adults and turns off the airbag for children

  • In general, smart technology does the following:

    • Measures a condition

    • Compares its value to a threshold condition

    • Takes appropriate action based on result
