Advances in Ubiquitous Computing: Cyber-Physical Systems, Smart Cities and Ecological Monitoring debuts some of the newest methods and approaches to multimodal user-interface design, safety compliance, formal code verification and deployment requirements, as they pertain to cyber-physical systems, smart homes and smart cities, and biodiversity monitoring. In this anthology, the authors assiduously examine a panoply of topics related to wireless sensor networks. These topics include interacting with smart-home appliances and biomedical devices, designing multilingual speech recognition systems that are robust to vehicular, mechanical and other noises common to large metropolises, and an examination of new methods of speaker recognition to control for the emotion-state of the speaker, which can easily impede speaker verification over a wireless medium.
This volume recognizes that any discussion of pervasive computing in smart cities must not end there, as the perilous effects of climate change proves that our lives are not circumscribed by the geographically sculpted boundaries of cities, counties, countries, or continents. Contributors address present and emerging technologies of scalable biodiversity monitoring: pest control, disease transmission, environmental monitoring, and habitat preservation. The need to collect, store, process, and interpret vast amounts of data originating from sources spread over large areas and for prolonged periods of time requires immediate data storage and processing, reliable networking, and solid communication infrastructure, along with intelligent data analysis and interpretation methods that can resolve contradictions and uncertainty in the data—all of which can be bolstered by modern advances in ubiquitous computing.
- Examines the history, scope and advances in ubiquitous computing, including threats to wildlife, tracking of disease, smart cities and Wireless Sensor Networks
- Discusses user interface design, implementation and deployment of cyber-physical systems, such as wireless sensor networks, Internet of Things devices, and other networks of physical devices that have computational capabilities and reporting devices
- Covers the need for improved data sharing networks
Systems designers, biomedical engineers, biomedical researchers and policy makers in health care and medicine
