Abstract

The notion of Ambient Intelligence was introduced to describe a scenario in which, literally, computing is everywhere. This should not be taken in the narrow-minded sense of a computer on every desk, but in the rather subtler one of computers becoming embedded in everyday objects and augmenting them with information processing capabilities. Part of this vision is already becoming a reality, as tagging everyday objects with sensors, actuators and building an instrumented environment are recent practices in industry and academia. In fact, the smart object domain has matured over the years. The combination of Internet and technologies like near field communications, real time localization, sensor networking etc. are bringing smart objects into commercial use. However, there are still many open issues that need to be addressed to bring smart objects out of the living lab prototypes. In this position paper after laying out our understanding of smart objects, we present three research challenges for the proliferation of smart objects that we believe will instigate stimulating discussions in the workshop.
