Japan is quietly positioning itself for the next phase in digital technology: ubiquitous computing. A sign of things to come is T-Engine, arguably the most advanced ubiquitous computing platform in the world. T-Engine enables the distribution of software resources, including middleware developed on T-Kernel, its compact, real-time operating system. The platform also features standardized hardware and tamper-resistant network security. T-Engine enables developers to rapidly build ubiquitous…

Challenges in the age of ubiquitous computing: a case study of T-Engine, an open development platform for embedded systems

This paper describes software engineering issues and the future challenges inherent in the ubiquitous computing based on the experience of using Ubiquitous Communicator terminal that is based on T-Engine.

A Self-reconfigurable FPGA-Based Platform for Prototyping Future Pervasive Systems

A FPGA-based self-reconfigurable platform for prototyping such future pervasive systems to demonstrate the interest of self-adaptation combined with collaboration between hardware and software to cope with the constraints raised by future applications and systems.

Context Related Software Under Ubiquitous Computing

The historical background of commerce in electronic environment, the concepts related to context computing, ubiquitous computing and pervasive computing, and Grid computing are described and the three business models with these concepts incorporated in three different contexts are discussed.

An Internet of Things (IoT) architecture for embedded appliances

The uID-CoAP architecture is proposed, a new architecture designed to host IoT services on common embedded systems, like usual consumer appliances, and a software framework for embedded appliance nodes, designed to reduce the burden of embedded appliance manufacturers by providing an intuitive, consistent, and easy-to-use APL.

A Software Architecture Enabling the Web of Things

A software architecture to easily mash-up constrained application protocol (CoAP) resources is proposed that is able to discover the available devices and to virtualize them outside the physical network, so that the physical devices interact only with their own virtualization.

T-Kernel Integrated Development Environment ( IDE ) for Seamless Middleware Development

A solution by integrating the T-Kernel interface libraries into the Renesas HEW (High-performance Embedded Workshop) to help customers/developers to adopt T-kernel easily is presented.

Uma plataforma para integrar dispositivos eletrônicos em ambientes pervasivos

This work proposes a hardware and software platform for integrating devices into pervasive environments that enable devices share services and resources and communicate with each other and with network.
