About this book

This book offers an accessible guide to ubiquitous computing, with an emphasis on pervasive networking. It addresses various technical obstacles, such as connectivity, levels of service, performance, reliability and fairness. The focus is on describing currently available off-the-shelf technologies, novel algorithms and techniques in areas such as: underwater sensor networks, ant colony based routing, heterogeneous networks, agent based distributed networks, cognitive radio networks, real-time WSN applications, machine translation, intelligent computing and ontology based bit masking.

By introducing the core topics and exploring assistive pervasive systems that draw on pervasive networking, the book provides readers with a robust foundation of knowledge on this growing field of research. Written in a straightforward style, the book is also accessible to a broad audience of researchers and designers who are interested in exploring pervasive computing further.
