Pervasive Computing

  1. 1. Pervasive computing
  2. 2. A dvances in technology allow us to embed computing power into smaller and smaller devices. Ubiquitous computing explores the new possibilities afforded by the fusion of computers with everyday objects . T his talk will take a brief look at the foundations of pervasive computing, and lots more…. Computers E verywhere Pervasive Computing
  3. 3. What is Pervasive Computing? <ul><li>Technology View </li></ul><ul><li>Computers everywhere – embedded into fridges, washing machines, door locks, cars, furniture, people. </li></ul><ul><li>intelligent environment </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile portable computing devices </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless communication – seamless mobile/fixed </li></ul><ul><li>User View </li></ul><ul><li>Invisible – implicit interaction with your environment </li></ul><ul><li>Augmenting human abilities in context of tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Ubiquitous = mobile computing + intelligent </li></ul><ul><li>environment </li></ul>
  4. 4. Definitions <ul><li>Post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Ubiquitous computing, or calm technology, is a </li></ul><ul><li>paradigm shift where technology becomes virtually </li></ul><ul><li>invisible in our lives. </li></ul><ul><li>All models of ubiquitous computing share a vision of small, inexpensive, robust networked processing devices, distributed at all scales throughout everyday life. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Bill Gates home
  6. 6. Fictional Technologies in SPY KIDS
  7. 7. Intelligent Environment <ul><li>Lights, air conditioning, TV automatically switch on and </li></ul><ul><li>off when you enter or leave rooms. </li></ul><ul><li>Sit on your favourite chair and TV switches on to the </li></ul><ul><li>program you usually watch at this time of the day. </li></ul><ul><li>Use communicator/pda for phone, remote control, keys </li></ul><ul><li>payments, passport, health records, authenticator. </li></ul><ul><li>Route input from ‘virtual’ keyboard to nearest suitable </li></ul><ul><li>display. </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic detection of new items to control and physical </li></ul><ul><li>layout in a room or office, using computer vision. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Mobile Computing Vision <ul><li>Universal connectivity – anywhere, anytime </li></ul><ul><li>Accommodate heterogeneity of networks and communicators </li></ul><ul><li>Ubiquitous intelligent environment – embedded computers everywhere </li></ul><ul><li>Easy user interaction </li></ul><ul><li>Context independent access to services + context dependent information </li></ul><ul><li>Imagine Having a SINGLE remote to control all your Electronic Gadgets. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Essential Technologies for Pervasive Computing <ul><li>Hardware technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>microcontrollers … </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(Wireless) networking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sensors, actuators </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potentially: entirely new technologies (optoelectronics) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Software technologies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Operating environments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Networking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Middleware </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Platform technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User interfaces </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Sentilla Software <ul><li>Sentilla Point - Java-Powered software platform </li></ul><ul><li>C ontains - operating system, virtual machine and system libraries . </li></ul><ul><li>Sentilla Work, - Eclipse-based IDE  creating simple and easy programs. </li></ul><ul><li>Sentilla Server, PC-class software that enables the pervasive computers in the network to connect to your enterprise infrastructure </li></ul>
  11. 11. Sentilla
  12. 12. Sentilla Hardware <ul><li>Sentilla Mini  core of pervasive computing solution . </li></ul><ul><li>Combining MSP430 microcontroller with a TI/Chipcon CC2420 low-power wireless radio . </li></ul><ul><li>Design  flexibl e and scalabl e. </li></ul><ul><li>Mini pre-bundled with Sentilla Point ( the world’s only Java-compliant software platform for pervasive computers .) </li></ul>
  13. 13. Genre of product solutions <ul><li>Energy management. </li></ul><ul><li>Safety and security. </li></ul><ul><li>Logistics and asset management. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Sentilla Labs <ul><li>Bite-sized versions of large-scale industry applications. Project  refrigerator monitor. </li></ul><ul><li>Developer applications and prototype hardware. </li></ul><ul><li>Project  Motion Detector </li></ul><ul><li>Uses a Radio Shack infrared detector to alert you when there's movement. </li></ul><ul><li>Fun applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Project  classic, Pong. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Challenge: Social Issues <ul><li>Control: who watches the watchers, what is being recorded, who has access and when </li></ul><ul><li>Security of information </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy concerns </li></ul><ul><li>Transparency of computer actions (or lack thereof) </li></ul><ul><li>Legal implications of enabling technology </li></ul>
  16. 16. Make computers security “conscious”, minimise user intervention <ul><li>Establish strong identity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Goal: Cryptographically strong identity to devices (endpoints) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Means: Host Identity Protocol (HIP) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Assign and manage trust and authority </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Goal: Decentralised means for managing authorisation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Means: SPKI certificates </li></ul></ul>
