Challenges: environmental design for pervasive computing systems

  title={Challenges: environmental design for pervasive computing systems},

We argue that pervasive computing offers not only tremendous opportunities and exciting research challenges but also possible negative environmental impacts, particularly in terms of physical waste and energy consumption. These environmental impacts will come under increasing government and consumer scrutiny, and like other disciplines (e.g. architecture, transportation), pervasive computing will have to adapt accordingly. Further, we argue that software-related issues will play an increasing… CONTINUE READING
