System Support for Pervasive Applications
Pervasive, or ubiquitous, computing [38.4] has the potential to radically transform the way people interact with computers. The key idea behind pervasive computing is to deploy a wide variety of computing devices throughout our living and working spaces. These devices coordinate with each other and network services, with the goal of seamlessly assisting people in completing their tasks. Pervasive computing thus marks a major shift in focus, away from the actual computing technology and towards people and their needs.
