The proliferation of mobile devices and the pervasiveness of wireless technology have provided a major impetus to replicate the network-based service discovery technologies in wireless and mobile networks. However, existing service discovery protocols and delivery mechanisms fall short of accommodating the complexities of the ad-hoc environment. They also(More)
Service discovery problem has recently been drawing much attention from researchers and practitioners. Jini, SLP, and UPnP are among the few emerging service discovery protocols. Although they seem to provide a good solution to the problem, there is an unaddressed need of more sophisticated location and context-aware service selection support. In this(More)
T oday’s pervasive computing spaces are developed primarily with proprietary technology and seem to lack a long-term vision of evolution and interoperation. The future pervasive computing environment will comprise a wide variety of devices and services from different manufacturers and developers. We must therefore achieve platform and vendor independence as(More)
The Pervasive Computing Laboratory at the University of Florida is dedicated to creating smart environments and assistants to enable elderly persons to live a longer and a more independent life at home. By achieving this goal, technology will increase the chances of successful aging despite an ailing health care system (e.g. Medicaid). One of the essential(More)
A critical challenge facing the pervasive computing research community is the need to manage complex interactions among numerous interconnected computers and devices. In such a pervasive space, a given application's functionalities are partitioned and distributed across several computing devices that are spontaneously discovered and used. In recent years,(More)
To allow a seamless integration between wireless LANs and Wireless WANs, we developed a full stack adaptation model and a simple subnet architecture that superimposes Mobile-IP on cellular-type wireless LANs. The idea is to use Mobile IP as an integrative layer atop different LAN/WAN networks. While Mobile-IP is widely used in wireless WANs, it is not known(More)
The growth of the wireless Internet has led to the optimization of network protocols to provide for a better performance. Most of the Internet traffic uses TCP, the defacto transport layer protocol. Unfortunately, TCP performance degrades in the mobile and wireless environments. A good amount of research has been attempted to improve its performance in the(More)
