background
Background
  • In the coming years, wireless computing will find widespread application, and computing will become increasingly pervasive, or ubiquitous.
  • The wireless revolution promises to have as fundamental an impact on society as the emergence of the commercial Internet.
  • Industry observes predict that there will be more than a billion wireless ”gizmos” on the Internet within then next few years. 
  • Gizmos include hand-held devices, e.g, mobile-phone terminals, a diverse range of PDAs, ”wrist watches,” smart clothing, ”cameras,” home appliances, cars, smart dust, etc.

Background (2)
  • This proliferation of on-line gizmos is made possible by the continued, ”exponential” advances in electronics.
  • Technologies such as WAP and Bluetooth, and their successors, will bring about the required connectivity.
  • Satellite-based positioning systems (e.g., GPS), as well as technologies embedded in the wireless service infrastructures, will enable the positioning of a substantial portion of the gizmos.

Background (3)
  • In the near future, the Internet will be accessed more frequently from gizmos than from desktop computers.
  • Some experts pertain that we have yet to come to understand how the above technologies will be used and how they will impact our lives. 
  • However, near-term applications include
    • safety and security services
    • metered services (such as car insurance)
    • position-enabled tourist services
    • traffic services and management,
    • games, etc. 
  • The gizmos will generate vast quantities of data, either resulting from human interaction, or independently.

Background (4)
  • The scenario sketched here will see the applications of techniques from a wide range of disciplines in computer science, and it may become a huge area of application for database technology. 
  • In this scenario, where change is inherently continuous, the capture, modeling, maintenance, and querying of location information may be of critical importance.
  • The continuous change perhaps raises many research issues.

panel question s
Panel Question(s)
  • Is there anything new and challenging in this for the database community?
  • Where do existing database techniques fall short in meeting the challenges?
  • What are the new database challenges?
