Embedded-Internet Devices: A Means of Realising th Pervasive Computing Vision

  title={Embedded-Internet Devices: A Means of Realising th Pervasive Computing Vision},
  author={Jeannette Shiaw-Yuan Chin and Victor Callaghan},
This paper explores the feasibility of applying newly emerging low-cost embedded-Internet devices in support of pervasive computing; a new vision whereby domestic appliances are provided with Internet connections enabling them to be accessed and controlled from anywhere, anytime, via any web based interface. The principal challenges addressed by this work were how to design an embedded -Internet computing architecture that supported appliance control, multimode heterogeneous clients interfacing…

This paper explores how the recent development of low-cost System on a Chip (SoC) boards can be used by the Internet of Things (IoT) DIY community to assist the process of smart object innovation

Using Mixed-Reality to Develop Smart Environments

This paper presents the use of physical/virtual components able to be combined through a 3D graphical user interface, sharing real-time information and presents three scenarios of interconnected real and emulated spaces, used for education, achieving integration between real and virtual worlds.

Some socio-technical aspects of intelligent buildings and pervasive computing research

This article offers a conceptual framework for situating multidisciplinary socio-technical research in intelligent buildings by presenting descriptions of current work, interleaved with a set of short vignettes that are intended to provoke thought so that developers and the population at large might consider the personal and regulatory needs involved.

Virtual appliances for pervasive computing: a deconstructionist, ontology based, programming-by-example approach

This paper introduces a model that promises to change the nature of home appliances - the deconstructed appliance model, and introduces a novel approach to programming pervasive computers called Task Oriented Programming (TOP), and presents a Deconstruction and Community Programming (dComp) ontology supporting the formation and programming of coordinated communities of home appliance.

Pervasive Computing and Urban Development Issues for the individual and society

Pervasive computing is the third wave in IT, after the PC and the Internet and is based on the use of numerous “invisible”, omni-present, always-on, communicating computers embedded into everyday

Inhabited Intelligent Environments

A solution based on embedded-agents which enables emergent intelligent behaviour by predominantly implicit processes is discussed and a more human-directed approach to programming in pervasive environments is introduced which is referred to as task-oriented programming (TOP).

Putting the Buzz Back into Computer Science Education

This paper adds to earlier BuzzBoard publications by describing support for Raspberry Pis and intelligent environments, together with reviewing the latest developments in computer science curricula in the USA and UK.

Towards a trust based approach to security and user confidence in pervasive computing systems

This work describes ongoing work into the development of a trust-based architecture aimed at increasing security and user confidence in pervasive computing systems and presents an architectural diagram showing the novel Trust & Role Based Access control system.

Programming iSpaces — A Tale of Two Paradigms

‘iSpace, the final frontier’ — this parody of Star Trek encapsulates many of our aspirations for this area as, in the longer term, iSpaces are likely to be the key to mankind’s successful exploration

Robust , eco-Friendly , on-Demand Bin ( ReDbin ) An Internet-of-Things based household-waste container for future smart cities

This concept paper discusses the need for a new household waste management system and presents a comprehensive literature review of research that concerns the production of high-tech refuse bins. In



Embedding Intelligence: Research Issues for Ubiquitous Computing

How embedding intelligence into artefacts in the form of embedded-agents could provide one viable solution is described by explaining the enhanced functionality that embedded-intelligence can provide to everyday products.

Service portability of networked appliances

This document outlines an approach for delivering services to networked appliances using techniques that allow mobility of these services both in a conventional location independent sense and between physical devices.

The iDorm - A Practical Deployment of Grid Technology

A purpose built environmental testbed for Intelligent Interactive Environments research, based upon student accommodation (iDorm) is described. It is argued to be a practical example of Grid

The iDorm : Gateway to Heterogeneous Networking Environments

The prototype information gateway created to monitor and control the authors' experimental iDorm environment is described, and a vision for combining gateways with embedded-agents to form omni-functional intelligent gateways is outlined.

Scenarios for Ambient Intelligence in 2010 Final Report

Four scenarios to describe what living with 'Ambient Intelligence' might be like for ordinary people in 2010 are developed and underline the place of Ambient Intelligence in serving society and the community as well as individuals.
