Mobile and Pervasive Computing

Mobile computing was born in the early 1990s with the advent of full-function laptop computers and wireless LANs. Since then, Carnegie Mellon has been a major contributor to the fundamental ideas, systems, and experimental validations of mobile computing. Our research thrusts in these areas include cloudlet-based mobile computing, context-aware networking: programming support for context-aware and sensor-rich environments, user-controllable security and privacy for pervasive computing, urban computing, wearable computing, self-managing chaotic wireless networks, VM-based hands-free mobile computing, secure interactions and trust establishment, and living analytics.
