The Location Stack: A Layered Model for Location in Ubiquitous Computing

  title={The Location Stack: A Layered Model for Location in Ubiquitous Computing},
  author={Jeffrey Hightower and Barry Brumitt and Gaetano Borriello},
Based on five design principles extracted from a survey of location systems, we present the Location Stack, a layered software engineering model for location in ubiquitous computing. Our model is similar in spirit to the seven-layer Open System Interconnect (OSI) model for computer networks. We map two existing ubiquitous computing systems to the model to illustrate the leverage the Location Stack provides. By encouraging system designers to think of their applications in this way, we hope to… CONTINUE READING
