Japanese Ubiquotous Network Project: Ubila

  • Masayoshi Ohashi


Recently, the advent of sophisticated technologies has stimulated ambient paradigms that may include high-performance CPU, compact real-time operating systems, a variety of devices/sensors, low power and high-speed radio communications, and in particular, third generation mobile phones. In addition, due to the spread of broadband ccess networks, various ubiquitous terminals and sensors can be connected closely.
