Overview - Mobile Computing: Defined by physical movement of a connected, “smart”, device. - Ubiquitous Computing: Defined by integration of computational devices into everyday objects and environments.
Overview - Volatility The nature of distributed partially mobile systems is changeable and therefore volatile. - Issues: The constantly changing users and devices demands a high level of adaptivity and standardized communication from the network.
