Bischoff, Urs and Kortuem, Gerd (2006) Programming the Ubiquitous Network: A Top-Down Approach. In: Proceedings of the Workshop on System Support for Ubiquitous Computing, at the 8th Annual Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp 2006), 2006-09-172006-09-21.
A ubiquitous network is characterised by a large number of small computers embedded in our environment. Writing distributed applications for this kind of network can be a challenging task. Programming and re-programming each single device is not feasible; it is too time consuming, too costly and too error prone. We argue that a top-down approach to writing applications is useful. We propose a highlevel language that can specify a ubiquitous network’s global behaviour. A compiler can automatically generate device-level executables from this global specification.
