This lecture presents a first compendium of established and emerging standards in pervasive computing systems. The lecture explains the role of each of the covered standards and explains the relationship and interplay among them. Hopefully, the lecture will help piece together the various standards into a sensible and clear landscape. The lecture is a digest, reorganization, and a compilation of several short articles that have been published in the "Standards and Emerging Technologies" department of the IEEE Pervasive Computing magazine. The articles have been edited and shortened or expanded to provide the necessary focus and uniform coverage depth.

There are more standards and common practices in pervasive systems than the lecture could cover. However, systems perspective and programmability of pervasive spaces, which are the main foci of the lecture, set the scope and determined which standards should be included. The lecture explains what it means to program a pervasive space and introduces the new requirements brought about by pervasive computing. Among the standards the lecture covers are sensors and device standards, service-oriented device standards, service discovery and delivery standards, service gateway standards, and standards for universal interactions with pervasive spaces. In addition, the emerging sensor platform and domestic robots technologies are covered and their essential new roles explained. The lecture also briefly covers a set of standards that represents an ecosystem for the emerging pervasive healthcare industry.

Audiences who may benefit from this lecture include (1) academic and industrial researchers working on sensor-based, pervasive, or ubiquitous computing R&D; (2) system integrator consultants and firms, especially those concerned with integrating sensors, actuators, and devices to their enterprise and business systems; (3) device, smart chips, and sensor manufacturers; (4) government agencies; (5) the healthcare IT and pervasive health industries; and (6) other industries such as logistics, manufacturing, and the emerging smart grid and environment sustainability industries.

About the Author(s)

Sumi Helal, University of Florida
Sumi Helal is a Professor at the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department (CISE) at the University of Florida. His research interests span the areas of Pervasive Computing, Mobile Computing, and networking and Internet Computing. He directs the Mobile and Pervasive Computing Laboratory at the CISE department, and is cofounder and director of the Gator Tech Smart House - an experimental home for applied research in the domain of aging, disability, and independence. He led the technology development of the NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center (RERC) on Successful Aging (2001-2007) and is currently leading a new initiative on smart home based personal health and independence, funded by the National Institutes of Health. Outside of his teaching and research activities, Dr. Helal is the Associate Editor in Chief of IEEE Computer, an editorial board member of the IEEE Pervasive Computing magazine and Editor of its column on Standards, Tools and Emerging Technologies. He has been on the editorial board of the IEEE Transaction on Mobile Computing. He published over 200 books, book chapters, journal articles, and conference or workshop papers. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the USENIX Association.
