Smart Wireless Access Points for Pervasive Computing

Abstract - Research in ubiquitous computing has traditionally focused on sensing and making use of user-related context. However, a pervasive computing environment is also a mobile computing environment, where QoS adaptation is often a major concern. We present an integrated framework applicable to both user- and network-oriented adaptation, that uses a common base for sensing context. Smart wireless access points called M-WASPs provide a wireless network infrastructure, and perform sensing, adaptation and other cognitive functions in a distributed fashion, within a pervasive computing environment.
