Pervasive Computing

Thesis Statement

To understand the current and future applications, underpinning technologies and associated issues related to pervasive computing based on a specific case study.


The technologies that disappear are the most profound of all. There is a recent remarkable growth in the computing power, smart phones, networking, embedded devices and wireless communications. That are being merged with the data mining power techniques, emergence of cloud computing support and enabled researchers social networks. Also, along with the practitioners that can create a huge variety of pervasive computing that are reasonably intelligent, can act autonomous and reply to the users need(Cook & Das, n.d). There is an interesting and critical development in the field of pervasive computing. On one side, the field has reached the advancement till a point where the facility prototype test beds that include body area network, smart homes, social mobile networking and health monitoring systems are becoming common. This foundation of success laid on mature technology that has the ability of performing smart communication fusion of information, discovery resource, tracking of locations, recognition system and user preferences learning. While on the other side, the system that were designed were tested on applications on a small scale(Cook & Das, n.d). Along with the limitations of tools, datasets and results. There has been a significant progress in the vision of Mark Weiser's paper on ubiquitous computing. Most of the research focused on the development of small scale systems that were tested by users and being interacted with limited range of devices. The research community required to address the issue of scale in order to bring advancement in the field and to make the technology persuasive. Though it is good that the movement from small scale to the immense scale is under process, However, not to forget that for future large scale, pervasive computing systems are required to operate temporary scales and different computational platforms, devices, applications and through different users that are dealing with a large quantity of data(Cook & Das, n.d). Large number of devices have enabled a huge spectrum of applications that include the prediction of traffic jams, modelling the human activities, social interaction facilitation, keeping track of health trends and disasters responding. This large number of devices includes tablets, smart phones, wearables, laptops, embedded wireless systems and RFIDs. They are responsible for handling a very large quantity of data that are distributed over computer platforms and networking regions. Hence, supporting hundreds of millions of users, which also includes those of social media and mobile phones (Cook & Das, n.d).


Two Stages of Pervasive Computation Development

Researchers have suggested that the current suggestions and views on pervasive computing are under the stress of short term considerations. For in most of the parts, the highly advanced pervasive computing capabilities such as autonomous applications ...
