Abstract

A central concern in the area of ubiquitous computing has been the integration of digital resources including devices and heterogeneous networks with the physical world and people. However, current systems are independent to each other, which means that resources for ubiquitous computing are separated and applications could not be created on cross-platform. The openness, simplicity, flexible and standardization of Web have given insights of building up a more uniform, open and scalable service environment for ubiquitous computing. Therefore, we propose the concept of Web of X (WoX) Service Environment for ubiquitous computing in this paper. In this article, we analyze the requirements of building a service environment for ubiquitous computing, and then the conceptual architecture of WoX Service Environment and some key technical solutions are proposed as well.
