Pervasive or Ubiquitous computing is a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. In the course of ordinary activities, someone 'using' ...
pervasive computing engages many computational devices and systems simultaneously, and may not necessarily even be aware that they are doing so. This model is usually considered an advancement from the desktop paradigm. This book presents topical research data in the study of pervasive computing, including bio-inspired principles used on a simple computational model for distributed interacting systems; automating the development of pervasive systems using a Model-Driven Development (MDD) guideline; wireless sensor networks and pervasive computing; and using pervasive computing in biomedical applications.
