The Ubicomp Google
Posted: Tuesday, 10 January 2006 00:00
George Roussos, Mark Levene and several collaborators are working on the ubicomp google, a navigation engine for the emerging ubiquitous computing world. Users moving through ubiquitous computing enabled spaces, that is environments constructed by physical objects augmented with computational, sensing, auto-identification and wireless communication capabilities, create trails of information that must be archived, managed and subsequently retrieved. The navigation engine being developed by the Birkbeck team offers such facilities and thus plays a role in the ubicomp world akin to that of Google on the web.
