pervasive systems

These networked embedded systems contain a mixture of hardware and software: their scope may be as simple as a sensor, or as complex as a portable device, or even an entire building or city. Cooperation is a necessity, to perform their tasks with sufficient quality or efficiency, and to reach the required functionality and support real time interactions. The specific nature of these systems require them to be open, scalable, adaptable and dependable, while integrating heterogeneous devices ranging from tiny actuators to larger computers.
