Pervasive Computing Laboratory

co-directed by Dr. Tappert and Dr. Cha, and supported by HVCET

Pervasive computing goes beyond the realm of today's personal computer to ubiquitous devices that are becoming smaller and more powerful with embedded technology and connectivity. It concerns the idea that almost any device, from clothing to appliances to cars to homes and to the human body, can be imbedded with chips to connect the device to an infinite network of other devices. Pervasive computing combines current network and wireless technologies with progressively smaller computing devices, voice recognition, artificial intelligence, and Internet capability, to create an environment where the connectivity is unobtrusive and always available.

Human-computer interaction (HCI) has not really changed for several decades

This paradigm will not meet the uses of computers in the future because The purpose of this laboratory is to provide the environment
