Mobile Computing and its Applications
Currently, computing technology and wireless communication enable us to handle multimedia information “anytime, anyplace”. This type of mobile computing systems consist of three different but interrelated structural components: end-terminals, networks and OS/middleware, all of which are integrated to provide application services. Mobile computing is based on distributed computing and embedded system technology and applied to ubiquitous systems, mobile commerce, mobile phones, etc. The objectives of this course are to understand the state of the art of mobile computing technologies, and to get familiar with the development of application software for terminal devices.
