"...a must-read text that provides a historical lens to see how ubicomp has matured into a multidisciplinary endeavor. It will be an essential reference to researchers and those who want to learn more about this evolving field." -From the Foreword, Professor Gregory D. Abowd, Georgia Institute of Technology First introduced two decades ago, the term ubiquitous computing is now part of the common vernacular. Ubicomp, as it is commonly called, has grown not just quickly but broadly so as to encompass a wealth of concepts and technology that serves any number of purposes across all of human endeavor. While such growth is positive, the newest generation of ubicomp practitioners and researchers, isolated to specific tasks, are in danger of losing their sense of history and the broader perspective that has been so essential to the field’s creativity and brilliance. Under the guidance of John Krumm, an original ubicomp pioneer, Ubiquitous Computing Fundamentals brings together eleven ubiquitous computing trailblazers who each report on his or her area of expertise. Starting with a historical introduction, the book moves on to summarize a number of self-contained topics. Taking a decidedly human perspective, the book includes discussion on how to observe people in their natural environments and evaluate the critical points where ubiquitous computing technologies can improve their lives. Among a range of topics this book examines: How to build an infrastructure that supports ubiquitous computing applications Privacy protection in systems that connect personal devices and personal information Moving from the graphical to the ubiquitous computing user interface Techniques that are revolutionizing the way we determine a person’s location and understand other sensor measurements While we needn’t become expert in every sub-discipline of ubicomp, it is necessary that we appreciate all the perspectives that make up the field and understand how our work can influence and be influenced by those perspectives. This is important, if we are to encourage future generations to be as successfully innovative as the field’s originators.

Following in the footsteps of the web, Web 2.0, and the iPod, Ubiquitous Computing ("UbiComp") is the next game-changing technology. Leading expert Bo Begole, the director of PARC’s UbiComp Center, shows executives, technology managers, and entrepreneurs how to successfully incorporate UbiComp into their own products, services, and strategies. Begole introduces the technologies of UbiComp, shows how they fit together, and identifies the challenges and opportunities they present. Next, he answers the key questions decision-makers and strategists ask most often about UbiComp, including: What is it, why does it matter, and how will it impact my business? What industries will be most affected first? Which parts of my organization will UbiComp change most? What UbiComp solutions should we consider for our internal business processes? How should I position my company for these transformations? What barriers must we overcome and which barriers can we erect for our competitors? What should I build, partner, or buy? What barriers does my company need to overcome to adopt a UbiComp-based business?

It is easy to imagine that a future populated with an ever-increasing number of mobile and pervasive devices that record our minute goings and doings will significantly expand the amount of information that will be collected, stored, processed, and shared about us by both corporations and governments. The vast majority of this data is likely to benefit us greatly—making our lives more convenient, efficient, and safer through custom-tailored and context-aware services that anticipate what we need, where we need it, and when we need it. But beneath all this convenience, efficiency, and safety lurks the risk of losing control and awareness of what is known about us in the many different contexts of our lives. Eventually, we may find ourselves in a situation where something we said or did will be misinterpreted and held against us, even if the activities were perfectly innocuous at the time. Even more concerning, privacy implications rarely manifest as an explicit, tangible harm. Instead, most privacy harms manifest as an absence of opportunity, which may go unnoticed even though it may substantially impact our lives. In this Synthesis Lecture, we dissect and discuss the privacy implications of mobile and pervasive computing technology. For this purpose, we not only look at how mobile and pervasive computing technology affects our expectations of—and ability to enjoy—privacy, but also look at what constitutes "privacy" in the first place, and why we should care about maintaining it. We describe key characteristics of mobile and pervasive computing technology and how those characteristics lead to privacy implications. We discuss seven approaches that can help support end-user privacy in the design of mobile and pervasive computing technologies, and set forward six challenges that will need to be addressed by future research. The prime target audience of this lecture are researchers and practitioners working in mobile and pervasive computing who want to better understand and account for the nuanced privacy implications of the technologies they are creating. Those new to either mobile and pervasive computing or privacy may also benefit from reading this book to gain an overview and deeper understanding of this highly interdisciplinary and dynamic field.

This book constitutes the carefully refereed post-conference proceedings of two International Workshops: Self-Managing Solutions for Smart Environments, S3E 2011; and the workshop on Health and Well-being Technologies and Services for Elderly, HWTS 2011; as well as a Doctoral Colloquium, held in conjunction with, GPC 2011, in Oulu, Finland, in May 2011. The 19 revised full papers presented together with 1 keynote lecture were carefully revised and selected from 26 submissions and focus on the topics self-managing solutions for smart environments; health and well-being technologies, and services for elderly. The topics of the doctoral colloquium papers had a wide scope and they represented different viewpoints and sub-disciplines inside the ICT field.

It is vital that today’s engineers work with computer-based tools and techniques. However, programming courses do not provide engineering students with the skills that are necessary to succeed in their professional career. Here, the authors propose a novel, practical approach that encompasses knowledge assimilation, decision-making capabilities and technical agility, together with concepts in computer-aided engineering that are independent of hardware and software technologies. This book: Outlines general concepts such as fundamental logic, definition of engineering tasks and computational complexity Covers numerous representation frameworks and reasoning strategies such as databases, objects, constraints, knowledge systems, search and optimisation, scientific computation and machine learning Features visualization and distribution of engineering information Presents a range of IT topics that are relevant to all branches of engineering Offers many practical engineering examples and exercises Fundamentals of Computer Aided Engineering provides support for all students involved in computer-aided engineering courses in civil, mechanical, chemical and environmental engineering. This book is also a useful reference for researchers, practising engineers using CAE and educators who wish to increase their knowledge of fundamental concepts.
