It is rapidly becoming clear that entertainment will be one of the killer applications of future wireless networks. More specifically mobile gaming is predicted to be worth $1.2 billion by the year 2006 to providers in the U.S. alone [20]. The driving force behind this is the introduction of powerful feature rich handsets and ubiquitous access to high(More)
The introduction of more powerful, feature rich, portable handsets is enabling more engaging mobile multimedia entertainment. Improvements in wireless technology infrastructure are enabling access to ubiquitous, always-on data networks. We believe that based on the popularity of multiplayer games over IP networks, there will be significant demand for mobile(More)
With the recent advances in mobile networking, context-aware computing, and sensor-based computing, researchers and game designers are able to explore the potential of combining these new technologies together to develop mobile, networked, context-aware, augmented reality multiplayer games. As part of the new research collaboration between Lancaster(More)
The University of Lancaster is a campus based educational institution with over 10,000 members of staff and students on campus during a typical day. The University is currently investigating the use of mobile and smart devices as a platform for delivering mobile learning services and administrative information on a personalised basis. This paper describes(More)
In recent years real-time multi player networked gaming has grown in popularity due to exciting challenges posed by competing with human opponents. It is therefore very likely that the introduction of more powerful portable wireless hand held devices will motivate a similar demand for fast action collaborative multi player gaming capabilities on those(More)
Traditional networked multiplayer games are typically confined to be played on desktop computers. With the recent advances in mobile networking, context-aware computing, and sensor-based computing, researchers and game designers are able to explore the potential of combining these new technologies together to develop mobile networked, context-aware,(More)
Developments in wireless networking will soon enable high bandwidth, low-latency, wireless wide area networks. In addition the rollout of mobile IPv6 across these wireless technologies will greatly challenge traditionally held ideas regarding support for mobile applications. This paper describes the development of a novel application which has led to the(More)
