Data Transport on the Networked Surface

Networked Surfaces are surfaces such as desks which

provide network connectivity to specially augmented devices,

for example handheld computers. When the devices

are physically placed on top of the surface, they can connect

to different kinds of services – mainly, but not exclusively to

send and receive data.

This paper discusses challenges in implementing Networked

Surfaces, paying particular attention to data flow

issues, focusing on how the various software and hardware

entities comprising the Surface interact to transport data to

and from objects.
