In an emergency, availability of the pervasive communications environment could mean the difference between life and death. Possibly one of the first guides to comprehensively explore these futuristic omnipresent communications networks, the Pervasive Communications Handbook addresses current technology (i.e., MAC protocols and P2P-based VoD architecture) and developments expected in the very near future, when most people and places will be virtually connected through a constant and perpetual exchange of information. This monumental advance in communications is set to dramatically change daily life, in areas ranging from healthcare, transportation, and education to commerce and socialization. With contributions from dozens of pioneering experts, this important reference discusses one-to-one, one-to-many, and many-to-one exchanges of information. Organized by the three key aspects—technology, architecture, and applications—the book explores enabling technologies, applications and services, location and mobility management, and privacy and trust. Citing the technology’s importance to energy distribution, home automation, and telecare among other areas, it delves into topics such as quality of service, security, efficiency, and reliability in mobile network design, and environment interoperability.

From basic concepts to research grade material and future directions, the Near Field Communications Handbook provides comprehensive technical coverage of this rapidly emerging field. Walking readers through emerging applications, it offers a glimpse at a future in which near field communication (NFC) technology is fully integrated into daily life. Containing cutting-edge contributions from 50 experts from around the world, the book covers the range of topics related to NFC. It begins with an overview of the basics in digital, biometric, and mobile identity and security. Next, it reviews NFC applications with an all-in-one device and provides detailed guidelines for designing NFC applications with high levels of acceptance in consumer markets. Investigates the role of NFC in the development of pervasive universities and ubiquitous cities Examines privacy-preserving receipt management with NFC phones—proposing a policy-based approach for managing user transaction history Considers the empirically grounded design of a nutrition tracking system for patients with eating disorders Compares the performance of four traditional mobile payment service concepts The handbook includes coverage of the StoLPAN Consortium and its contribution to industry progress, as well as the use of RFID/NFC for pervasive serious games. Capturing the state-of-the-art in NFC technology, this reference provides you with ready access to the information required to advance the field. Its well-illustrated and organized structure also makes it suitable as a text for graduate-level and research-oriented courses dealing with NFC.

The 5th edition of the prestigious AECT Handbook continues previous efforts to reach outside the traditional instructional design and technology community to the learning sciences and computer information systems communities toward developing a conceptualization of the field. However, given the pervasive and increasingly complex role technology now plays in education since the 1st edition of the Handbook in 1996, the editors have reorganized the research chapters in this edition to focus on the learning problems we are trying to solve with educational technologies, rather than to focus on the things we are using to solve those problems. Additionally, for the first time this edition of the Handbook reflects our field’s growing understanding of the importance of design scholarship to inform practice by including design case chapters. These changes for this edition of the Handbook are intended to bring educational technology research into the broader framework of educational research by elaborating on the role instructional design and technology plays as a scholarly discipline in addressing education’s increasingly complex issues. Provides comprehensive reviews of new developments in educational technology research and design practice. Includes concrete examples to guide future research and practice in the ways emerging technologies can be used to solve educational problems. Contains extensive references furnished to guide readers to the most recent research and design practice in the field of instructional design and technology.
