Michael Beigl University of Karlsruhe Short Overview -------------Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp) is about embedding computing devices into every physical object and the environment - and the utilization of such novel computing environments. Selected topics within Ubicomp are presented and will be discussed while the seminar. The seminar can be accompanied by an in-depth tutorial and practical course on the same subject if there is interest. S1: Ubiquitous Computing: Introduction, Devices and Hardware (9/22/2005, 16:00-17:30 τ-11, SFC) -----------------------------------------------------------This part of the seminar will shortly introduce into Ubiquitous Computing. Exemplary devices and Ubiquitous Computing environments are shown and compared. Selected hardware topics will give an insight on Ubicomp technology. This seminar lecture strives to stimulate discussion about technological options to implement the vision of Ubiquitous Computing. S2: Ubiquitous Computing: Networks and Communication (9/27/2005, 18:00-19:30 τ-11, SFC) -----------------------------------------------This seminar part will make students and other attendees familiar with basic developments in the area of networks and communication. It will cover aspects of low-level networking up to high level, middleware topics. Upcoming standards will be discussed based on selected aspects together with the students. This seminar lecture should give an insight on standard communication techniques and technologies used in Ubiquitous Computing. S3: Ubiquitous Computing: - Sensors and Context (10/3/2005, 18:00-19:30 τ-11, SFC) ------------------------------------------This seminar lecture explains sensor technology and how to make use of ubiquitously available sensor systems. It will give an overview over sensor technology in general, introduce selected hardware principles of sensor systems and present some technical details. This seminar part will also show exemplary how to derive context from sensor information. This should lead into a discussion about potentials of sensor enriched computing systems and context aware environments. S4: Ubiquitous Computing: - Human Computer Interaction (10/5/2005, 18:00-19:30 τ-11, SFC) -------------------------------------------------As computing systems will ubiquitously surround humans, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) will be a central part of Ubiquitous Computing. This part of the seminar emphasizes on novel ways to create user interfaces (e.g. implicit interaction, tangible interfaces). Potential of such novel forms of user interfaces will be discussed.
