Designing Solutions-Based Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing: New Issues and Trends examines current practices and challenges faced by designers of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing projects. Analyzing theoretical assumptions, empirical research, practical implementations, and case studies, this book intends to present a comprehensive yet concise overview of the recent progress in ubiquitous and pervasive computing applications, as well as discuss new methodologies, technologies and approaches currently practiced. Truly interdisciplinary, this publication serves as a valuable reference for researchers in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science, students, educators, and industrial trainers interested in network sensors, embedded systems, distributed systems, computer networks, and computer science.
"This book provides a general overview about research on ubiquitous and pervasive computing and its applications, discussing the recent progress in this area and pointing out to scholars what they should do (best practices) and should not do (bad practices)"--Provided by publisher.
