About the book
Ubiquitous computing is often mentioned as an application domain with blurry or even undefined rules, boundaries, and examples. Fortunately, there are several concepts, developments, and pieces of research that have been put forward into this book (data integration, distributed systems, data enhancement via blockchain or machine learning, etc.) which explain what ubiquitous computing is and how it can be used to everyone´s advantage. All these contributions are based on research works and developments involving areas of knowledge such as the Internet of Things, Autonomous Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Wireless Sensor Networks. Among other topics, heterogeneous hardware integration, low capability distributed systems, microservices, security deployments for autonomous devices, or data mining procedures are fully mentioned and described here. In this way, this book provides a holistic view onto the field of ubiquitous computing and all its features, both related to the software and hardware, while at the same time offering knowledge from cutting edge projects that provide the backbone of the contents that have been included.
