Location-Aware Computing Comes of Age

Mike Hazas, James Scott, and John Krumm

Abstract

At the core of invisible computing is context awareness, the concept of sensing and

reacting to dynamic environments and activities. Location is a crucial component of context, and much research in the past decade has focused on location-sensing technologies, location-aware application support, and location-based applications.

With numerous factors driving deployment of sensing technologies, location-aware computing may soon become a part of everyday life.
