Mobile Sensors and Context-Aware Computing is a useful guide that explains how hardware, software, sensors, and operating systems converge to create a new generation of context-aware mobile applications. This cohesive guide to the mobile computing landscape demonstrates innovative mobile and sensor solutions for platforms that deliver enhanced, personalized user experiences, with examples including the fast-growing domains of mobile health and vehicular networking.
Users will learn how the convergence of mobile and sensors facilitates cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things, and how applications which directly interact with the physical world are becoming more and more compatible. The authors cover both the platform components and key issues of security, privacy, power management, and wireless interaction with other systems.
- Shows how sensor validation, calibration, and integration impact application design and power management
- Explains specific implementations for pervasive and context-aware computing, such as navigation and timing
- Demonstrates how mobile applications can satisfy usability concerns, such as know me, free me, link me, and express me
- Covers a broad range of application areas, including ad-hoc networking, gaming, and photography
