Pervasive - Tutorial2: Shwetak Patel: Location in Pervasive Computing
Abstract: Location is a large element of context in ubiquitous computing. There are several technologies and systems for computing location to a varying degree of accuracy. We'll outline some examples of location systems and consider their strengths and weaknesses in terms of cost, accuracy, deployment,calibration, and maintenance. The goal will be to provide researchers with advice that will make them better informed at integrating location systems into ubiquitous computing applications. For those wanting to do research in location systems themselves we aim to provide an overview of the challenges currently being faced in this field.
