Designing an Ubiquitous Computing Development Kit

Christopher Crispin-Bailey, Michael John Freeman

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


In this paper the development of ubiquitous computing
applications is investigated, from initial micro-controller
based prototypes to application specific FPGA based
systems. The aim of this work is to add additional
capabilities to every-day objects, allowing them to sense
their environment and interact with the people and
objects within it, to enhance their existing functionality.
To achieve this we have developed a micro-controller
based, ubiquitous computing development kit (UcDK),
allowing researchers to rapidly construct and evaluate
different ubiquitous computing applications. In addition
to this, we are developing component technologies for
future pervasive computing environments. This has lead
to the construction of an application specific processor
and other IP cores to meet these needs.
