Creating new business opportunities through ubiquitous computing

1 August 2008

As mobile and embedded computing systems increasingly pervade environments, more and more information and content is available throughout our daily surroundings. Pervasive appliances and applications offer new sets of technical and business challenges – especially in the areas of managing information overload, making computing environments transparent to users, and enabling mobile and ambient devices to serve as intelligent interfaces to our physical surroundings.
