AbstractThe objective of mobile computing is to develop system and application level software for small, battery powered terminals equipped with the wireless network connection. There is a rapidly growing interest in this field with companies spending billions of dollars developing technology and buying spectrum in the recent PCS auctions.
In this paper we offer a perspective of mobile computing from the standpoint of our own research project at Rutgers University. The DataMan project (T. Imieliński as Project Director and B.R. Badrinath as the CoDirector) is funded by ARPA (within GLOMO program), and two awards from NSF as well as industry support through the industry sponsored Wireless Information Networks Laboratory (WINLAB).
