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.
