  • The purpose of this study is to predict promising Location Based Services under an ubiquitous environment based on their technical characteristics, which is strongly required in rapidly changing circumstances with ubiquitous computing and Broadband Convergence Network (BcN). To begin with, this study proposes a classification scheme of ubiquitous services and defines five technology factors required for ubiquitous services. Next, this study collects a number of ubiquitous services from previous researches and classified them according to the classification scheme of ubiquitous services. And then, technical importance of the collected ubiquitous services are evaluated in terms of technology factors by using service-technology metrics. Finally, a set of important Location Based Services under ubiquitous environments and the correlations between technology factors are identified by using the evaluation results.

  • In recent years, motivated by the emergence of ubiquitous computing technologies, a new class of networked robots, ubiquitous robots, has been introduced. The Ubiquitous Robotic Companion (URC) is our conceptual vision of ubiquitous service robots that provide users with the services they need, anytime and anywhere in ubiquitous computing environments. To realize the vision of URC, one of the essential requirements for robotic systems is to support ubiquity of services: that is, a robot service must be always available even though there are changes in the service environments. Specifically robotic systems need to be automatically interoperable with sensors and devices in current service environments, rather than statically preprogrammed for them. In this paper, the design and implementation of a semantic-based ubiquitous robotic space (SemanticURS) is presented. SemanticURS enables automated integration of networked robots into ubiquitous computing environments exploiting Semantic Web Services and AI-based planning technologies.

  • The evaluation of ubiquitous computing service is the important work for preparing the commercialization of the ubiquitous business services in which ubiquitous intelligence (ubitelligence) is embedded. However, the methodology for evaluating ubiquitous computing services has not been developed enough. Even the study of making a distinction what is 'ubiquitous' or not is insufficient yet. Hence, this paper aims to propose an integrated methodology to assess the ubiquitous computing services. A multi-layered approach is adopted to assess not only technical but also behavioral service levels.

  • The introduction of a ubiquitous environment has realized commercial ubiquitous services in various industrial fields and government area. The central and/or local governments are demanding an appropriate investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service. Thus, this study develops and suggests an evaluation model for ubiquitous service by reflecting its characteristic of promoting public good, as well as its broad ripple effect on people. The investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service suggested by this study is based on Cost Benefit Analysis Method. Especially, the 'Benefit' is analyzed in two aspects; 'Economic Benefit', which shows the benefit that ubiquitous service providers to the overall local economy, and; 'Financial Benefit', which shows the profit of individual investors participating in the introduction of ubiquitous service. The investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service suggested by this study can be used by the central and/or local government during their evaluation for investment before introducing a ubiquitous service. Also, when introducing a ubiquitous service in public field, the model can be used to support the decision making of private businesses for investment. Finally, it can be used to promote and inform the expected benefits of introducing a ubiquitous service to local residents.

  • In this paper, we explore the ubiquitous system that provides new business opportunities in the context of digital convergence. Exploiting the value network of the proposed ubiquitous system, we analyze strategic market drivers that define the speed and direction of the evolution path for ubiquitous industries. Motivated by the dynamic growth of ubiquitous industry, we design a set of ubiquitous business models that pave the way for firms to identify profitable business cases. In addition, we analyze the evolution path of the proposed business model such that the model can be implemented in the life-cycle of ubiquitous industry. Futhermore, we develop a modeling framework for selecting a suitable business model and for evaluating the performance of the selected business model.

  • The ubiquitous computing & technology is to make passive IT machinery as the smart-object to solve the problems of information management. These ubiquitous devices can be a concierge of humans lives. In addition, the ubiquitous computing & technology added with Pro-Active processing technology is the intellectual automatic process capacity that probably enhance quality of human's life. Although the social influencing power of ubiquitous computing technology is so critical, research on the social impact of ubiquitous has been studied insufficiently. And, we also need the countermeasures to protect the societies from the side effect of the ubiquitous computing technology. The purpose of this research is to minimize the loss which comes from the new ubiquitous society, by presenting the technological and systematic alternatives and by researching the various side effects. This research suggests the proper alternatives by reviewing and by researching the adverse effects of the ubiquitous computing technology.

  • In 21st century, mankind greets an era of ubiquitous computing where physical and virtual space are merged through the innovation of digital and IT(Information Technology), meanwhile ubiquitous computing and network paradigm suggest a new direction which our future educational system should head for. A society where people, computers, and objects can be connected with each other anytime and anywhere, that is, a society of ubiquitous computing where everything in our living space are interconnected by a immense network system may bring a variety of changes into our educational environment in schools. In this study I analysed the forecast of school educational orientation and ubiquitous educational environment and facilities in developed countries, and on the basis of the result, I performed a fundamental work for formation of a ubiquitous classroom environment which is feasible in Korea. In the section of conclusion, I present a model of ubiquitous classroom as a scenario based on ubiquitous computing technology applicable to future classroom environment.

  • Since 2000, ubiquitous cities are spread over Korea by government's supporting project for ubiquitous city construction. But recently problems such as low perception of ubiquitous city are issued. There is just a few studies about a creation of citizen centric ubiquitous city service even though there have been several studies and policies to overcome such problems. There is not enough research on applying ubiquitous city service effectively at the stage of ubiquitous city plan. To solve this problems, this study ultimately aims to suggest essential ubiquitous city service applied at that stage to guarantee minimum quality of ubiquitous city. The expert survey method was employed to select essential ubiquitous city service. To achieve this goal, First, a survey performed by 163 local government officers to know current status of the ubiquitous city construction project. Second, another survey was performed for about 30 days by 38 experts worked at local public official and ubiquitous city organization to select essential ubiquitous city service. Finally we suggested 14 essential ubiquitous city service from the several viewpoints, which were universality, industry growth, social welfare, effective city management. And we analyzed the differences between ubiquitous city services written 14 ubiquitous city plan and essential ubiquitous city services.

  • Recent ubiquitous computing environments increasingly impact on our lives using the current technologies of sensor network and ubiquitous services. In this paper, we propose ubiquitous architectural framework for ubiquitous sleep aid service(UbiSAS) in the subset of ubiquitous computing for refreshing of human's sleep. And we examine technical feasibility. Human can recover his health through refreshing sleep from fatigue. Ubiquitous architectural framework for UbiSAS in digital home offers agreeable sleeping environment and improves recovery from fatigue. So we present new concept of ubiquitous architectural framework dissolving stress. Specially, we apply context to context-aware framework module. This context is transferred to context adaptive inference engine which has service invocation function in intelligent agent module. Ubiquitous architectural framework for UbiSAS using context adaptive rule inference engine without user intervention is technical issue. That is to say, we should take sleep comfortably during our sleeping. And sensed information during sleeping is changed to context-aware information. This presents significant information in context adaptive rule inference engine for UbiSAS. This information includes all sleeping state during sleeping in context-aware computing technique. So we propose more effective and most suitable ubiquitous architectural framework using context adaptive rule inference engine for refreshing sleep in this paper.
